Maintaining The Existence of a Tourist Village With Local Wisdom

(Case Study : Tracking Terbit Menoreh in Madigondo Hamlet, Samigaluh, Kulon Progo)

 

Abstract

 

During the Covid-19 period in Indonesia, the sector that experienced a very large impact was the tourism sector, as was experienced by Madigondo Hamlet. Madigondo Hamlet is located in Sidoharjo Village, Samigaluh District, Kulon Progo Regency, Special Region of Yogyakarta, located in the “Jalur Bedah Menoreh” program area developed by the Yogyakarta Special Region Government. Currently, in Madigondo Hamlet, the Tracking Terbit Menoreh (TTM) attraction is being developed which integrates potential spots in Madigondo Hamlet, including natural scenery, coffee plantations, history and religion, local wisdom, culinary, and creative industries. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the existence of Madigondo Hamlet where the tourism sector was the mainstay for increasing community economic activities was threatened. A good strategy is needed so that the tourism condition in Madigondo Hamlet can survive. Madigondo Hamlet with the Tracking Terbit Menoreh (TTM) attraction was chosen as an area that offers natural and cultural resources, where local wisdom is still actively used but is rarely considered an asset that can be valued to survive disasters and future development. The purpose of this study is to explore the local wisdom of the community so that it can maintain its existence during the Covid-19 pandemic. This paper also documents local initiatives and practices in people's lives in Madigondo Hamlet during the Covid-19 pandemic. The method used is action research, through self-help mapping, focus group discussions (FGD), and participatory design (workshops). The results of this study are local wisdom in the Madigondo Hamlet community in the form of ‘empon-empon’ spice plants and community knowledge in processing them, becoming part of the landscape arrangement and tourist identity of Tracking Terbit Menoreh. Community and community participation in Madigondo Hamlet in identifying problems and formulating solutions is a very important aspect in maintaining its existence as an ecotourism-based tourism village. In addition to being part of the tourist attraction landscape, these ‘empon-empon’ herbal plants are also part of the development of the creative industry in Madigondo Hamlet so that it can improve the community's economy.
