Urban farmer groups have limited yards. Vegetable cultivation can be conducted using a viticulture system because it can utilize limited land in urban areas. 10% of yards in urban areas have been planted, but 90% of the land is still not planted. The existence of farmer groups can provide an example in managing home yards, and the products produced can increase income. Meanwhile, the skills and knowledge of farmer group members regarding viticulture and organic fertilizer production are still low. One of the ways to improve skills and knowledge is through training. This study aims to improve the skills and knowledge of farmers in the cultivation of vegetable viticulture and the manufacture of liquid organic fertilizers. The method used is the descriptive method, which is to perform descriptive analysis to describe the concept of increasing skills and knowledge of farmers. The results of the training are organic vegetable products and liquid organic fertilizers. This research will provide a conceptual framework for farmer groups in applying viticulture technology and making liquid organic fertilizers on limited land.
