It employs qualitative research with participant observation, in-depth interview, focus group meeting, and case study analysis. The result indicates that the application of the new theory is consistent with sufficiency economy and the new theory. It improves and recovers agroecology, creating food security in household, knowledge transfer, network, and self-reliance.
