My name is Marcus and I am from England. My time in Wonosari with Santosa & Kusuma is coming to an end, and i leave on monday. I have been here for a week now, and i have loved the experience! I came here not sure what to expect, and i am very lucky to have been hosted by Santosa and Kusuma, who are so friendly and welcoming, which made it easy for me to settle in very quickly. They have cooked delicious food for me every day, and being vegan i realise this must be awkward for them at times, but they have done everything they can to accommodate me and welcome me into their home. I achieved my goals of finding soursop and an indonesian flag, and amazingly, i even managed to find a cacao tree, and after Santosa spoke to the owner, she gave me one for free! I couldn't believe it and have been showing all my friends at home, this is very rare for me and never would have happened if i didn't come here!
 I think that other travellers should DEFINITELY come to Wonosari and exper…

Marcus from England visit to Wonosari

My name is Marcus and I arrived in Wonosari on the 15/09/2018. Santosa and his son Kusuma welcomed me into their home and have taken great care of me since i arrived. They have fed me, given me a bed and been very, very good hosts and friends to me since my arrival in Wonosari. I have huge respect for them as they taught themselves English completely from scratch, and i know how hard this must have been, especially when none of the locals speak English, and their English is really good! I came here with no real expectations and 3 simple goals: To find and eat a soursop (sirsat), to find and buy the flag of Indonesia, and to experience local Indonesian culture with no real tourism and live life like a local. I achieved the first two, and without the help of Santosa this wouldn't have been possible. On my first day Santosa, Errol (from Taiwan) and I went on a trek through a number of villages and into the woods, seeing lots of fruit trees, locals and the temple after a long walk th…

Planting Strawberry and About Me.

Planting strawberry and the way of God.

I had a very bad experience recently, I couldn't sell my yield on local market. I planted spring onions that actually growth well. But, with no reason, the local market decreased their purchased to my product, so, I didn't have enough revenue from my farm. And the worsted is, they stop their bought at all with no reason also, although, I could serve them well and from the best of my harvest. I have a thought there are someone that envy to see my succeed and used a racism and religion way to beat me. I am a minority here.

Because I have been experiencing it for years until now precisely are 21 years. Someone was gave me an offer to work what they wanted like giving an advice to help me in order to how I become succeed. Yes, I very struggled to do that, and I am succeed. But, suddenly, all people that engaged or involved a business with me was changed their direction, and that were the things that I couldn't following it. And then they…

How Do I Think To Be A Successful Farmer?

My eyes and heart began to wide opened, that, to be a successful farmer it is not as easy as imagined. A lot of hidden knowledges and problems which have to be faced. Learn to become a successful farmer that who can enjoying his life in peace. A farmer who has an inner and physical satisfaction. Learn to look-out the hidden knowledges as well as hidden problems. All of those are already seen clearly in my mind.

I began to find my way to solidify my nature and behaviour as a farmer. If you are a crops lover or someone who are just starting your own garden, do not hesitate to follow these insights I found.

Centering your concentration on what you are planting.
Remove all you worries. Focus on producing the best crops you are having. Don't worry about the market, failures or anything. You would find your own markets and your own new insights automatically when you have already reached the best harvest yield of you. Do not stop when you got failures, continue and learn from there. Don&…

Overcoming Boredom When Farming.

Problems are always come unexpectedly, and I have just experienced it. Unfortunately I couldn't say all of my issues here, but I have resolved that problems through hard effort and the impact to me is that I am a bit frustrated, chaotic programs or delayed, chaotic financial, a loss of purpose, and the last is a high level boredom.

For three days I had to overcome one by one the impact of the problems I faced. Spirit? Yes, I had to keep to pumping my spirits while working on the farm. I had to work, I had to keep and take a good care to my plants. This is the only one way that is right for me and finally my spirit gradually began to rise.

The chaotic programs or delayed has resolved through discussed with my son. We both recalled, how our way in the days of yesterday. We did not record our regular activities. We only live alone. Then when we were creating a work activity, at the same time we would make that activity would be to be our daily life habits. When an unexpected situation…

Has crossed on my mind. How I can continue my work whereas my farmer hat is too small to block the rain. And then...BooM..! I remember, I have an umbrella which is already broken, I was thinking that I gonna could use it and putting it on the top of my farmer hat. But, how?

Crossed my mind again, cut the umbrella handle and use the top of umbrella to be combined with your farmer's hat. Yes, no longer thinking, I did what was crossing in my mind. I cut the umbrella holder and then I placed the top of umbrella and tied it with a small wir…
