On 25 November 2011, a workshop aimed at strengthening community seed sources was held at the Faculty of Forestry IPB.

The traditional knowledge in the village was investigated through Local ecological knowledge approaches (LEK) by a master student at IPB, Ms. Ridhahati Rambe. Other invited resource persons in the workshop were Prof. Hardjanto, Dr. Yulianti Bramasto and a representative from Regional Office for Forest Seed ( Java-Madura), based in Tanjungsari, Sumedang.
