Sabang City, situated in the westernmost region of Indonesia, is part of the National Tourism Strategic Area with abundant natural resources. The agricultural sector, covering 19.23% of the total area, has not fully tapped into the potential of agrotourism. The absence of agrotourism in Sabang City prompted a collaborative effort between Syiah Kuala University, Atsiri Research Center, and the Sabang Free Trade Zone and Free Port Concession Agency (BPKS). The community service approach utilized community-based learning and the Quadruple Helix model, involving academics, government, business, and the community. Through Focus Group Discussions (FGD), the team addressed short-term goals by discussing agrotourism potential and long-term goals of community empowerment. The findings reveal the extensive essential crop plantations in Sabang City, particularly patchouli, and cloves. Sabang's patchouli exhibits superior quality, with the highest yield value, making it an excellent candidate for export. Cloves, besides their economic value, serve as effective antioxidants and eco-friendly pesticides. The proposed Sabang Agrotourism Area includes five zones: Reception, Agro-tourism, Thematic Park, Family Garden, and Accommodation. Each zone caters to different activities, ensuring a holistic agrotourism experience.&nbsp; This community service contributes valuable insights and potential breakthroughs to policymakers, agrotourism developers, farmer groups, academics, and the broader community. The comprehensive analysis of Sabang's essential natural resources underscores the region's potential as a leading agrotourism destination. The proposed Agrotourism Area serves as a strategic step towards sustainable development, augmenting community income and well-being.</p> 2024-04-16T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Dewi Suryani Sentosa, Syaifullah Muhammad, Muhibbuddin, Izziah, Muslim Amiren, Zulfahrizal, Adinda Gusti Vonna, Muhammad Rizki Maulana, Rauzah Yusuf, Sofia Keumalasari, Marthunis Innovation in Bali Tourism Destination Marketing: Utilization of Digital Technology and Social Media in Bali, Focusing on Badung Regency 2024-04-20T05:23:27+00:00 Putu Herny Susanti Rahmawati Rahmawati Firlie Lanovia Amir Febianti Febianti <p>Tourism in Indonesia, especially in Bali, has become a major economic pillar for the government and local communities.

Dewi Nusraningrum <p>The implementation of housing policy in the form of Self-Help Housing Stimulant Assistance (BSPS) in Indonesia is still not fully in line with expectations. The aim of this research is to analyze the effect of supervision and distribution on the satisfaction of people receiving the BSPS program in Cakura Village. The method used in this research is multiple linear regression with the Ordinary Least Square (OLS) estimation technique. The results of the research conclude that there is a positive influence from supervision (X1) on the level of satisfaction of the community receiving the program (Y) in Cakura Village. However, this influence is very small and not significant, with a correlation coefficient value of 0.343 and a significance level of 0.206. There is a positive influence from distribution (X2) on the satisfaction of program recipients (Y) in Cakura Village. Like the influence of the PPK supervisory role, the influence of the TFL distribution task is also very low as indicated by the correlation coefficient value of 0.477 and the significance level of 0.035. There is an influence of supervision and distribution together on community satisfaction with a coefficient of determination value of 0.578. This means that changes that occur in variable Y (community satisfaction) can be determined by changes that occur in variables X1 (supervision) and X2 (distribution) amounting to 57.8%. Meanwhile, the remainder, amounting to 0.422 or 42.7% of the change in variable Y is determined by other variables that are not included in the regression equation model.</p> 2024-06-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Suriyanti R., Dewi Nusraningrum Understanding Digital Literacy Culture in Students (Analytical study on PGSD students at Universitas Muhammadiyah Cirebon) 2024-06-08T15:45:46+00:00 Aiman Faiz Purwati Ramadhan Achmad Suryangi Himawan Sutanto Muhamad Fikri Jundulloh <p>The aim of this research is to analyze the extent to which students are able to utilize digital literacy.
