They face challenges regarding how to utilize cattle manure waste as environmentally friendly organic fertilizer. The objective of this community service is: 1) To provide knowledge to the farming community in Labuan Lelea Village on how to utilize cattle manure waste as organic fertilizer, as a substitute for inorganic fertilizers, which are known for their chemical content, scarcity, and fluctuating prices annually; 2) To promote organic fertilizers as an environmentally friendly alternative to inorganic fertilizers in agricultural lands; 3) To enhance the knowledge of farming communities regarding the effective utilization of cattle manure waste as organic fertilizer for both food crops and horticultural plants. The method employed in this activity is a participatory approach, wherein a team including Community and Student Service Learning Program (KKN) participants and local community members actively collaborate in fostering good cooperation between extension workers and farmers. The primary target audience of this training is farming communities engaged in plantation, food crops, and horticultural cultivation. The outcomes of this community service activity include increased awareness of how to utilize cattle manure waste (Bos Taurus). This process requires minimal investment as cattle waste, sawdust, and rice husks are all freely available materials, thus serving as a substitute for inorganic fertilizers which contain chemical substances and are environmentally unfriendly. </em></p> 2024-05-25T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Arifuddin Lamusa, Ali Akrab The Development of Lettuce (Lactuca Sativa) Vegetables Using a Hydroponic System in Narrow Home Gardens in Tanamodindi Sub-District, Palu City, Central Sulawesi 2024-05-19T22:25:58+07:00 Arifuddin Lamusa Faruq A.H Lamusa Nur Risky Islianty <p><em>This community engagement activity was conducted on Merpati Street, Tanamodindi Sub-District, Palu City, Central Sulawesi Province, in collaboration with Internship Students (MBKM) from Tadulako University.

This organic waste rots easily if left alone, causing an unpleasant odor in the surrounding area and causing a smelly and unhealthy environment. One way to handle organic waste, especially rotten fruit and vegetables produced from household or restaurant waste, is by making liquid fertilizer. The implementation method used is two stages, namely: 1) preparation stage; production originating from appropriate technological equipment activities for making liquid fertilizer, discussions and sharing with team members, and 2) the stage of implementing community service at partner locations, distributing questionnaires before and after the exposure.

This sorting is done because the number of feathers in the Swiftlet’s nests determines the price and cost of workers in processing feather cleaning. In addition, the shape of the Swiftlet’s nests needs attention. However, because it is complex, sorting is done simpler. Originally, Swiftlet’s nests were sorted into 50 categories.

However, legal issues related to the citizenship of immigrant children complicate the government's efforts to provide protection and proper education. The focus of the report also reveals a lack of public literacy regarding the procedures for working abroad, affecting the validity of immigrants' documents and their children's education rights. Mentorship centers, such as Sanggar Bimbingan Hulu Kelang, are emerging as a solution in helping immigrant children obtain basic education and overcome administrative barriers.

However, waste cooking oil cannot be used directly as an ingredient for creating soap because of the color and aroma, therefore it must be cleaned first by adding activated carbon, namely charcoal as an adsorbent, into the waste cooking oil to absorb the color and aroma. Later on, mix the oil and lye (a combination of NaOH and water), stir until the mixture resembles liquid soap, and then add around 1 ml of fragrance. Put the mixture in the drain.
