Biji Aren / Enau

“Miracle Seeds"
As a concrete manifestation of YKS' concern for preserving nature for the welfare of society.
The Kebun Shoe Foundation is happy to distribute Palm/Enau plant seeds to each individual free of charge with the hope that each individual who receives them will sow the seeds on their own land (for those who have it) on community land, government land, hills, mountains or along the river bank.

The seeds sown will grow naturally according to environmental conditions, without requiring special care so that the time comes for people to gain economic benefits from palm palm trees, such as:
1. Fiber for house roofs
2. ⁠stick for broom
3. ⁠sap juice for brown sugar
4. ⁠Kolamg kaling for fruit or food
5. ⁠flowers for goat food

Advantages of Sugar Palm/Enau Trees
1. Can grow well in all land conditions, from lowlands to highlands
2. ⁠No need for care at all from sowing the seeds until they mature
3. ⁠It has lots of roots, strong and spreads up to +-40 meters from the tree
4. ⁠very effective in preventing erosion
5. ⁠good for protecting water sources
6. ⁠as a source of oxygen

In a relatively short time, with the existence of a palm oil seed distribution system, with your support, the environment where we live will be sustainable, free from flooding and erosion.
Springs are maintained, oxygen production is sufficient, and society is prosperous

New Projects and Planning 2023-2027

Recovering focus after the entire Covid period, we had to evaluate the options for the projects we tried to realise. And because of serious health issues, we had to re-align our plans to suit the new situation, as many of us faced real setbacks, either financially or caused by new challenges.

It is no longer a matter whether the Workshop/Boatyard on Sumbawa will be realised, but the construction as well as the organisation of people running this, needs to be further re-organised and new participants will be asked to join this project.
This also holds consequences for an additional department of the Universitas Teknologi Sumbawa, in as much that lecturers can be appointed for the curriculum we need to put together and find realistic goals to train the students, who would choose the Maritime Department.

What will persist however is the setting up of the Research Team for the Bambu – Reforestation Grid and a continued quest for finding funding in Europe at the Universities that already are involved in sustainable Green Consciousness, like Wageningen en Delft. The next two years will be crucial to gain financial support and funding to set up the Research Team with the UTS, and collaborating with a small group of farmers, who need to be involved in the practical aspects of this research.

And even, despite considerable set-backs, we managed to get ourselves focused on one particularly important subject relating to the current climate change; reforestation through the most simple means we can envisage! Raising awareness of the necessity of planting trees, turning it in a format in which everyone is able to join, and taking away any obstacles that might hinder the our progress in such a pragmatic way, it will take your breath away!
NEW PROJECT: “Solidarity for All: Plant one and go on a hiking safari!”

Follow Pak Husein’s example, and pick up your pocket-full of Sugar Palm seeds and join forces with the Green Leaders of our times! Collect your free sample at Warung Kelor Kekait, Jl. Raya Tanjung KM.3 Desa Kekait, Kecematan Gunung Sari, Lombok Barat - NTB
Yayasan Kebon Sepatu is blessed with the Directorate on Lombok and Jawa, who will always join forces with third parties to realise our aims and support our vision; making this planet a healthy environment for our children, grandchildren and all creatures that dwell on it!

For the next two years, the Number One priority on the agenda is to raise funds for the Reforestation Project on Sumbawa, in Cooperation with the Universitatas Teknologi Sumbawa and affiliated technical and agricultural Universities in the Netherlands.
We, Stichting Kebon Sepatu - Yayasan Kebon Sepatu , extended the current Memory of Understanding with Pak Rektor, Chairul Hudaya PHD, in pursuit to realise this Research Trajectory for the benefit of Masyarakat Sumbawa and Indonesia in general, and break the mono-culture pattern that has been marked the landscape in Sumbawa.
This mono-culture has left the soil bereaved of valuable nutritional components, caused erosion, landslides in during the rainy season, and leave the land "high-and-dry" during the Musim Panas, because there are no (tree) roots to lock the water. The outcome of the research trajectory and collaboration units together with the farmers, will design a new methods of multi-crop farming, so that the farmers will always be able to provide for their families, it will harvest precious Bambu to be used in the building sector, and turn the environment, once more, into a healthy, cooler and more balanced place for us all.

Preparing for our meeting with the Universitas Teknologi Sumbawa to extend our present MoU for another two years, and enabling YKS to realise its goals for the research of the Reforestation Project on Sumbawa, we were working on the gift Stichting Kebon Sepatu - Yayasan Kebon Sepatu could offer and present to Pak Rektor, Chairul Hudaya for his last Graduation Ceremony on 10 February next......

Yayasan Kebon Sepatu is extremely proud to announce that her Vice President, Pak Husein has developed a new initiative under his own title: “SOLIDARITY FOR ALL”. This initiative is born from the necessity to raise awareness for the wellbeing of our planet and our precious environment to start planting trees. All his activities are based on preserving the natural surroundings for animals, plants and vegetation, because ultimately it is commonly known that this is the only way we can co-exist on this earth. We are given the task to look after all creatures that inhabit this planet and have a duty to make sure that we do make a serious commitment to make sure that we do so.

For the last year, he has been sowing palm seeds randomly wherever his journeys took him and just shattered the seeds in any given spot. The thought behind this is that he is willing to provide the seedpods for free (gratis) to anyone who will join him in this passionate activity and initiated his “Madman’s Safaris”! If you click on the link, it will take you automatically to the website of the Yayasan Kebon Sepatu’s blog page, where you can find more information about all these great initiatives.

When preparing for our visit to the Universitas Teknologi Sumbawa (UTS), we had intense brainstorming session, how we could contribute to their wish for continuing the reforestation research project and their annual graduation ceremony, and we are now planning an “all-out” planting/seed distribution festivity for the young graduates and their families, and for everyone who would like to make a difference for this earth….

If you want to join in this celebration or would like to zoom into our other green project “Plant a Tree for Life”, just let us know and send us an email: foundationkebonsepatu@yahoo.com and we will let you know how you can join us.

After years and years one of my dearest wishes have come true, thanks to the lovely Peneleh Team, who would not want me to climb the Bromo by myself 🥰
If it wasn’t for their support and enthusiasm, I would never have reached the summit 🎈

Prachtige foto's

Geen last gekregen van je longen? Ik had bij terugkomst op de plaats waar alle auto's met motors aan staan te wachten, heel veel last van mijn luchtwegen gekregen, nog maanden last van gehad. Maar de Bromo was het wel waard.

The main purpose of my visit to Malang was to eleborate on my earlier presentation for INCRES5 September 2023: The hidden agenda of Prejudice, in collaboration with Professor Ari Kamayanti for Peneleh Research Institute.
Together with the launching of the book publication of "Kita bukan bebek", it was a wonderful and successfull event.

You're in Indonesia?

From Jakarta to Surabaya.... ... See MoreSee Less

Tomorrow is the start of a long-harboured wish to get to know the main island - and the home of Ibu Kota Jakarta - from the West to the East. Stopping over in Surabaya and then on to Malang, where I will give an informal guest lecture on the topic "The hidden Agenda of Prejudice", its risk and desillusion, but foremost the most difficult behavioural pattern to break and overcome mind-set limitations...

After that a visit to Mount Bromo, where hopefully the sunrise can be witnessed.... it then will be a most spectecular event.....
