A Journey through Bali’s Natural Heritage
The Experience offers visitors a deeper understanding of Bali’s natural heritage and the initiatives in place to protect it. The tour immerses participants in the beauty and sustainability of the Permaculture Garden, showcasing innovative techniques for growing food in harmony with nature. From organic farming methods to permaculture principles, guests will gain insights into how Begawan cultivates a regenerative ecosystem that nurtures the land and provides a sustainable way of farming.
As the tour continues, visitors explore the regenerative rice fields – a testament to Begawan’s commitment to sustainable agriculture and our commitment to abandoning the use of agrochemicals. Witness the ancient wisdom of Balinese rice farming combined with modern regenerative practices that promote soil health, water conservation and biodiversity. Engaging with the farmers who tend to these fields, guests learn about the importance of preserving traditional knowledge and supporting local farmers in their quest for sustainable livelihoods.
Bali Starling Breeding & Release Center: Protecting an Endangered Species
The highlight of The Experience is the visit to the Bali Starling Breeding & Release Center, a crucial conservation site dedicated to the protection and rehabilitation of the endangered Bali Starling, a native bird species found only in Bali. The centre serves as a sanctuary for these magnificent birds with the aim to increase their population through successful breeding programs and responsible release into the wild. By participating in this tour, visitors actively contribute to the conservation efforts and the survival of this remarkable species.
Begawan Learning Centre : A Fun Way to Study After-School
What makes The Experience truly remarkable is the philanthropic aspect. All profits generated from the tour are directly channelled into the Begawan Learning Centre, which provides free quality education for local children. This initiative empowers the younger generation by equipping them with knowledge and skills that will shape their future, enabling them to become environmentally conscious leaders and change-makers within their communities.
Avery, one of the guests from the United States gave us his testimony, “I really like Begawan, and how we are able to start in the morning to see the Starling up close and see all the different work they do with the breeding, with pairing them and taking care of them in the morning. For me it’s really fun to come out to the field to the release site and see starlings flying freely in the field.”
