Come and join our BOTANY WALKS and BOTANICAL PRODUCTS CLASSES at "Ubud Botany Interactive Studio”

My name is Dewi. I am a Balinese native. I have a Bachelor degree in Botany and Agriculture from Udayana University in Denpasar, as well asa Master of Science in Botany. I grew up in a farmer’s family in a village close to Ubud, where I learned about Balinese agriculture, our native plants and how they are used in Balinese culture. I started Ubud Botany Interactive (UBI) so I could share knowledge of our plants and how they are used in Balinese culture with my team. Ubud Botany Interactive offers daily activities.
