Aren (Arengapinnata) has a special function ecologically and economically, therefore the species was potential to be utilized as a conservation plant of soil and water, as well as high economic value plantation. This activity was aimed to improve the community knowledge in terms of aren cultivation techniques, enlarge the aren plantation area, seedling quality, enhancement of yield, cost efficiency of plant maintenance and enhancement of public awareness of the importance of soil and water conservation through the aren planting. Three villages bordering the protected forest were chosen as training location ie. Padan, Way Kalam, and Sumur Kumbang District of South Lampung. The training was a part of a series Community Empowerment Learning Program of Community Service Program (KKN PPM) University of Lampung. A course and discussion about aren cultivation (consist of nursery, superior parent trees selection, planting, plant maintenance, and harvesting) followed by a demonstration of practice (demonstration plot of aren nursery and plantation), and then mentoring and coaching were employed as training method. Implementation of the training has significantly increased the cognitive knowledge of the farmers about the cultivation of aren, where previously was categorized very low to be very high. The activity has also increased the desire of the community to conserve aren, availability of aren nursery, superior parent trees were identified in the land cultivated by the community, increase as much as 750 aren trees planted in protected forest which border the 3 villages, and enlarge 2.5 ha of aren plantation. Furthermore the training was become a means of community empowerment learningthat trains students to encourage the community to be self-sufficient economically by developing aren.
