Departure: Leaving For Community

IPB Goes To Field 2012

Official Hat of IPB Goes To Field 2012

Seemingly I will be out of posting for next a month. The university program called for voluntary to take experience on living among real community at designated villages spreading over Java, Sumatra, and southern part of Borneo. I made myself to have been registered together with other student fellows for a program called:" IPB Goes To Field 2012".

This year it has already been extended into 10 fields of concern, one I'm going to take will be in Regency of Klaten, Central Java focusing on Planthopper Eradication and Soil Quality Improvement for Sustainable Rice Production. I become more curious since this voluntary activity has great deal with my research plan for final thesis. Morever, living experience amongst farmer/local people would be more precious how I would like to be understanding from social problem to agricultural problem. Though it seems to force us the volunteers surviving in any condition. So challenging!

Counting few days, I and team will be departing to designated area where we tackle burden the way of practicing "theorical knwoledge" into real activity. It's not that simple, based on previous experience that of seniors, subjects on the class are like in the cage of bird instead of on the branch of forest. The reason why students are quitely importantly suggested to have more field experience. I agree, we almost happen unable to solve most of our problem if only we write down on a paper. The real problem is what occurring among society instead of in class.

Now, it's time to take the experience!

No doubt an important part of your study as well as an important part of genuine life's experience.

Good luck!

A fine post in praise of Solo.

Coincidentally my wife ( who stayed with our son In Jakarta last month) spent almost a week in Solo. Her account and yours are about the same - it is a city perfectly matching tradition and progress. And everybody seems to be convinced Jokowi has been crucial to bring about recent achievements.
