Our objective today was to help with organizing and planting at one of the only organic farms in Bali. Due to the Mount Agung evacuation, we weren’t able to go to our original destination of the Side by Side Farm. Instead, we gathered in the front porch of the home stay and helped with replantation of the herble crops. We learned the important process of planting carefully from Ketut who is in charge of the farm. First we mixed the soil together, then we made special plastic bags to contain the soil, slowly put the plant into the pot and then a final touch up by filling the pot up a bit more with the leftover soil.
For our free time, some of us hit the beach, spa, swimming pool and the night street market. The most exciting part of the night street was buying sorongs, tasting their cultural food and looking around. We fully enjoyed the day by planting and rewarded ourselves with some souvenirs.
