Q & A
＞We are a movement that aims to increase Balinese farmers' quality of
life. Right now we started our activities by initiating a local
Who is members like back bone ?
At our backbone, we are a team of local Indonesian. Majority of us
are youth having just graduated from university. To help us run the
movement, we are mentored by local expert in different fields such as
Balinese Landscape, Marketing, and Organic Production.
＞organic vegetable brand "Bagi Bumi". Our pilot project began in August
Who gave birth to ideas? Who is the sponsor?
Radhya Avisya, the current project manager has felt, seen, and
wondered why agriculture was always belittled by others when the need
for food is endless. She herself is a graduate of Animal Husbandry
from VHL University in the Netherlands, where farming is seen as one
of the key industry holding the country and is appreciated. Thus the
idea to make a movement to “make farming cool again” was created.
Cause after all NO FARMER, NO FOOD, NO FUTURE.
The project began with the support of BNI Berbagi (CSR of Bank Negara
Indonesia)and many individual donators. Every year with the growth
from our Local Brand BAGI BUMI, we are planning to grow and make even
more impact for more farming families.
＞2018 at SMK N 1 Petang, the last agricultural highschool in Bali.
What's the difference SMK N 1 Petang and Future Farmers ?
Future Farmers Indonesia is the movement while SMK N 1 Petang is
the location of our farm model production and learning centre. It is
where Future Farmers Indonesia began our operations and where we hope
organic production continue to be seen by farmers, students, chef,
businesses, and many more!
＞We work together with cinemawithoutwall and Sedasa Lodge as local
balinese here often still need to see actual proof before believing about
And most importantly help the farmers market their organic products
so they get the price they deserve.
Are there any suppliers?
Are you looking for a place to sell or a shop that will buy vegetables?
Yes! Very much. Currently we are selling our products every week
through farmers market and sunday market events, but we want to grow
even further. We want to be able to sell our products in the tourism
sector so we can provide constant market for our farmers. However, we
are looking for businesses and buyers who will appreciate the hardwork
of our farmers that produce vegetable and fruit chemical-free.
＞Next, we want to spread the benefits of organic farming to the parents of
students as well as farmers in petang area.
We want to give them planting kit of: seeds, organic fertilizer, natural
pesticides and farming equipment
Who are making planting kit , seed or Seedlings ?
Where is the knowledge and experience from?
We got our basic knowledge from our mentors. For organic farming we
are mentored by Island Organics Bali
( https://www.islandorganicsbali.com/ ). From theory, in our first year,
we conduct trials and trials with the help of students at SMK N 1
Petang. Based on that trial and error we develop our own method and
that we apply to the farmers. We make our own seedlings and distribute
them to farmers, as in the seedling phase plants are most sensitive.
So we want to reduce the risks to farmers.
