Workshop – Syntropic Farming

Next week at Student Village a one and only opportunity to learn more about Syntropic Farming, a sustainable way to grow food that is attracting more and more followers around the world.

Syntropic Farming is an answer to many of mankind’s urgent questions. By learning from and translating nature’s processes and ecosystem dynamics to farming, it results in an independence from external inputs (including irrigation), the growth of healthy soil, carbon sequestration and a regeneration of ecosystems.

Syntropic Farming is about creating diverse, rich and resilient ecosystems that are productive and economically viable

What A Week for High School

It was an epic week in High School last week. We had dozens of students on campus creating a beautiful mural of Green School, constructing a 30 meter + water tower and engaging in a number of activities with primary and early years students.

Meanwhile, our very own original adaptation of the great epic, The Ramayana loaded into our Bio Buses and headed east into Java to perform 3 times to wide acclaim, while also finding the time to summit Bromo, plant some trees, and spread the news about bio fuel.

Happy National Education Day!

On last Tuesday, Indonesia commemorated the national education day, it was initiated in remembrance of Ki Hajar Dewantara, a national hero and lifelong educator who pioneered education system in Indonesia. Ki Hadjar Dewantara has coined a famous proverb on describing his ideals for education. Rendered in Javanese, the maxim reads: Ing ngarso sung tulodo, ing madyo mangun karso, tut wuri handayani. Which translates: “(for those) in front should set an example, (for those) in the middle should be raise the spirit, and (for those) behind should give encouragement”.

Today, 128 years after Ki Hajar Dewantara was born, we gratefully inherited his spirit in educating Indonesia future generation by bringing 350 local students into our school to experience the Green School way of learning to become green future leaders.
