Eps. 9 (DESAMIND SERIES) Townhall Muda: Cultivating Sustainability Through Senanggalih’s Triumph in Advancing Eco-Friendly Trigona Honey Harvesting

Townhall Muda Desamind Series in East Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, awakening a harmonious coexistence between humanity and nature by promoting sustainable Trigona honey harvesting and revolutionizing local farming practices.
In the heart of Senanggalih Village, a transformative event unfolded, captivating the minds and souls of 70 participants who gathered on a crisp Sunday, October 22, 2023. This wasn't just another gathering; it was the thunderous roar of change echoing through the Townhall Muda Desamind Series. The theme, "Promoting Sustainable Trigona Honey Harvest through Socialization and Training in Non-Destructive Honey Harvesting Tools," reverberated through the air, marking a significant leap towards a harmonious coexistence between mankind and nature.

The eclectic mix of attendees included Trigona Bee Farmers, the formidable Village Government (PEMDES) of Senanggalih, the enterprising Senanggalih Village-Owned Enterprises (BUMDES), the vibrant Youth Community Organizations (Karang Taruna), the wise Village Consultative Boards (LKMD), the nurturing Family Welfare Movement (PKK), the progressive Desamind Lombok Timur Chapter, the intellectually stimulating Senanggalih English Corner, and the spirited Young Civil Servants (ASN Muda) of Lombok Timur.

This wasn't merely an event; it was the inception of a revolutionary collaboration. Awardees Desamind Indonesia (Lalu Junaedi Halki) and the visionary Senanggalih Village Head (H.M. Suparlan) orchestrated a strategic dance towards the future, validating projects and signing Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs). Their eyes were fixed on one goal – to fortify the sustainability of honey harvesting in the region, with a laser focus on the indigenous Trigona bees, custodians of the local ecosystem and agriculture.
Senanggalih Village, a hidden gem pulsating with untapped potential in local agriculture, was the canvas for this epic transformation. The canvas, however, bore scars – scars of local farmers grappling with outdated, environmentally unfriendly honey harvesting methods. The Townhall Muda Desamind Series wasn't just an event to address challenges; it was a battleground where warriors armed with knowledge and passion fought to revolutionize Trigona honey harvesting.

Within the confines of this village revolution, a symphony of activities unfolded, bringing together farmers, agricultural sages, and the very heartbeat of the community. Mr. Miftahul Jannah S.E, a local agricultural maestro and Trigona whisperer, seized the spotlight, unraveling the tapestry of sustainable Trigona honey harvesting. His words, like golden nectar, dripped with the urgency of adopting practices that danced in harmony with nature, safeguarding the local ecosystem and agriculture.

But the symphony didn't stop there. Fathin Syihab S.P, the emissary from SYILEP Indonesia in Nusa Tenggara Barat Province, took the reins, orchestrating a dynamic discussion and question-and-answer session. In this interactive arena, participants bared their souls, shared their trials, and sought wisdom from the experts. It was a crucible of ideas, a forge where the sparks of change ignited.

The aftermath of the Townhall Muda Desamind Series was nothing short of a revolution. A seismic shift occurred – the once-muted whispers of sustainable Trigona honey harvesting transformed into a roaring crescendo. Community awareness soared to unprecedented heights, breaking through the barriers of ignorance. Local farmers, armed with newfound knowledge, embraced non-destructive honey harvesting tools, turning their fields into sanctuaries of abundance without leaving scars on the land.

Senanggalih Village emerged not just as a host but as a beacon of change. The success of the Townhall Muda Desamind Series rippled through its fields and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on local farming practices. The air was now filled with the sweet fragrance of progress, and the landscape echoed with the hum of industrious Trigona bees.

The story of Senanggalih Village isn't just a tale; it's an anthem of hope for the future. As the echoes of change reverberate through its hills, similar initiatives are beckoned in other villages. Let this be a rallying cry for sustainability, a testament to the delicate dance between agriculture and nature. The Townhall Muda Desamind Series wasn't just an event; it was a revolution – a revolution with honeyed consequences that will linger in the hearts of the villagers and reverberate through the annals of time.
