In March of 2015, Mitchell Reese from Curious Legends was invited to Central Kalimantan by Yayasan Permakultur Kalimantan (YPK). An inspiring time, Mitchell was introduced to various members of the local community. This included village elders, dyak dancers, ethnic musicians, government officials, and several local schools. Strong links were made, and several Indonesian artists were invited to be a part of the project.

YPK’s permakultur test site in the village of Sukamulya was chosen as the project development location, with several workshops planned for the local community to become involved with the project. It was an exciting time, and we can’t wait to get back to Indonesia!

Below are some videos from this initial trip:
