Camplong II is one of the villages in the Kupang regency dominated by cattle farmers with limited knowledge and skill in managing animal waste. These farmers have the habit of burning organic material that can be used as a fertilizer source, which adversely affects the environment. Therefore, this study aims to improve the knowledge and skills of farmers by training them to make organic fertilizer from a natural compound such as animal manure. Furthermore, the purpose of implementing this community service is to manufacture organic bokashi using organic fertilizers and vegetable products. Other important aspects affecting this community are the level of education, the role of farmers, and the source of information. The result showed that community service activities have provided positive benefits on organic fertilizer and skills in the form of increased knowledge by producing bokashi fertilizer. The final product has benefited from improving household income for farmers in Camplong II village in Kupang, NTT.
