Abstract

Community-based agrotourism development is believed to provide benefits for the welfare of farmers, as it provides employment opportunities and seeks community. As one of the economic empowerment efforts of the villagers, agrotourism development in Sanda Village requires support and efforts to optimize the resources, both human resources and natural resources. This research aims to analyze the institutional role of community and social capital of farmers in Sanda village for agrotourism development. Data obtained through observation, field interviews and library studies, then analyzed and presented in qualitative descriptive form with interpretation as a base pole. The results showed that the existence of local institutions in Sanda village (Subak, Pokdarwis, PKK, Karang Taruna, Bumdes) can be used as a means and contribute in realizing agrotourism business independence. The social capital of Sanda village farmers is able to strengthen mutual trust and mutual respect in the bonds of synergistic business activities.
