Abstract

Residential area of Dasan Tereng village is quite dense with a small yard, and the village community has not maximized the utilization of their home yard. This is due to inadequate knowledge, low interest in the use of the yard, and low motivation to utilize the yard. In the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing immunity is very important to maintain people's health and productivity. The yard can be used for cultivation of medicinal plants and spices that can increase immunity. In addition, the cultivation and processing of plants from the yard may provide business opportunities for increasing household income. Cultivation in the yard requires a cultivation container, cultivation media and fertilizers/pesticides to maintain best plant growth. These materials, when purchased, require a fairly high cost. On the other hand, raw materials for these can be obtained from households and can be created to cultivation containers, organic growing media, organic fertilizers and organic pesticides. These materials are commonly consider as waste, and may cause environmental and health problems when do not managed properly. Therefore, Students of Thematic KKN of University of Mataram in 2021/2022 had a program to assist the community in Dasan Tereng Village, Narmada District to optimize the utilization of home yards as an effort to increase food security and household income, as well as utilize the household waste, though socialization, demonstrating and mentoring. The mentoring was given to encourage motivation, increase understanding and assist the people of Dasan Tereng Village to optimize their home yard as an effort to increase food security and family income. Activities in this KKN include socialization, demonstrations and assistance for verticulture cultivation system and processing of spice and medicinal plants into ready-used herbal medicine. The activity also included utilization of plastic bottles waste into  cultivation containers and organic waste into ecoenzymes
