"Kisah terciptanya hutan pendidikan, konservasi, dan kesejahteraan sosial ekonomi bagi rakyat sekitar"

Is there a concrete example that can be used as a reference for restoring damaged forests to their green state? The answer is yes: Wanagama Forest.

To address these questions, we have "The Story of Creating Forests for Education, Conservation, and Socioeconomic Welfare for Local People." This book details the revival of forests from barren deserts that resulted from colonial-era exploitation and the utilization of forests during the early stages of independence. Finally, the first UGM foresters employed their knowledge, commitment, and devotion to God to restore the arid land to its verdant state.

How was this book written? Professor M. Naiem, one of the historical contributors and an eyewitness to the transformation of Wanagama, collaborated with several journalists to write it. He drew upon his memories and notes as well as a wealth of data and knowledge, to contribute to the book. Journalists compiled the remaining content through extensive literature research, field reports, and interviews with key informants.

"Dari Bukit-bukit Gundul sampai ke WANAGAMA I"

This book is a tribute to Dr. Soedjarwo for his assistance, encouragement, and guidance in forest development, as one of Indonesia's leaders in the field. It chronicles the process of transforming Wanagama's deforested and barren land into a forest that benefits both society and the environment. The development was approached from social, economic, and technical perspectives. The book provides a detailed description of the rehabilitation process for critical areas, starting with improving the microclimatic conditions to planting tree species that create changes in the biophysical and vegetation conditions of the Wanagama Forest. The book also covers the tree-breeding activities that were carried out, including species, provenance, and progeny trials. Written in an accessible language and supported by valid data, this book is intended for nature and forestry enthusiasts. We hope that the publication of this book will inspire and serve as a guide for forest development across Indonesia.

Lessons Learnt Converting Environmentally Fragile Areas Into Wanagama Teaching Forest

"Jejak Hijau Wanagama: Sebuah Perjalanan Menghijaukan Lahan Kritis"

This book, published in 2016, is the result of a collaboration between the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH Forest and Climate Change Programme (FORLIME) and the Ministry of Environment and Forestry.

"Jejak Hijau Wanagama: A Journey of Greening Critical Land" is the title of a book whose idea originated from the concern to document the story of the success of the pioneering foresters who have successfully rehabilitated forests. It began with the plantation forests during the Dutch colonial period in Java until the relentless exploitation by local communities during Indonesia's independence. The loss of forests in Gunung Sewu damaged the surrounding ecosystem, causing the forest-dependent communities to lose their livelihoods. Seeing the disaster, a group of environmental observers led by a figure from Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta initiated a movement to restore the forest ecosystem in Gunung Sewu. It started with the silk moth industry, 10 hectares of land provided by the government on July 10, 1966, to initiate sustainable forest restoration. Later, this land and forest restoration program was renamed Wanagama. Its success in restoring the forest in Gunung Sewu not only brought prosperity to the local community but also made a significant contribution to research and the forestry industry. The tangible evidence of its success has made Wanagama recognized both in Indonesia and around world. The light language of the book is very suitable for all Wanagama friends to read!
