Abstract

This study aims at organizing a family-based food empowerment; applying technology for organic vegetable farming in narrow land; and improving technical, price, and economic efficiency on production factors. The subjects of this study are housewives in Gunungpati, Semarang by employing an exploratory sequential mixed methods research design. The technology used in this activity is quite unique since the organic vegetables are cultivated using polybags considered as a pot or a place to grow vegetables. Treatments for disease control and pest vegetables harness the local herbs as an environmentally friendly medicine. The results show that organic vegetables produced by a housewives group meet the needs of food consumption, especially on vegetables. Vegetables cultivation sustainably maintains the family’s food self-sufficiency and lead to semi-commercial needs of the surrounding communities. Housewives community are pleased, satisfaction and be-come more productive in terms of economic matters.
