New this year, guests can enjoy a new Regenerative Farming experience in partnership with Astungkara Way, a non-profit organisation with the goal to bring Balinese youth back to farming their lands. Connecting with local farmers, guests will learn about subak, a Unesco World Heritage community-based system to manage water and farming that reflects the Balinese principle of Tri Hita Karana, meaning harmony among people, nature, and the gods.
The experience takes place in the rice paddies and community garden of Subak Uma Lambing, just a 20- minute drive from Amandari, offering an in-depth insight into regenerative farming methods aimed to restore depleted soil to a healthy state and nurture biodiversity.
Guests are also able to learn traditions of old by taking part in a Balinese Script Writing class. Also known as Aksara Bali, Balinese script is believed to have descended from ancient India dating back to the 11th century. At Amandari, guests are invited to learn the basics of reading and writing in an informative yet therapeutic session, accompanied by light refreshments.
