To ensure sustainability of livelihood and community access in forest land management through Social Forestry Program, sustainable agroforestry system has to be applied. Social Forestry in Gedong Wani Forest Management Unit (FMU) has performed through forestry partnership scheme, although the activity is still in the form of monoculture agriculture. The research aimed to initiate application of sustainable agroforestry technology in Gedong Wani FMU involving surrounding forest
community. The research used experimental method by establishing a 2 ha participatory demonstration plot at Kandis Resort. The research stages include socialization of sustainable agroforestry concept, structured interview about community perception on agroforestry practice and their preference on plant species, survey on biophysical aspect of the site, construction of technical design, seed(lings) preparation and transplanting of the seed(lings). The results showed that communities at the research site have never received socialization on sustainable agroforestry concept yet. Respondent preference on plant species were influenced by market prospect and fulfillment on food and wood. In the demonstration plot area, there were rubber plants with 66 trees/ha density with only 19% shading capacity. Its land cover was 8.76% and basal area was 0.82 m/ha. Soil fertility at the demonstration plot was categorized very low; especially its contents of Nitrogen, Phosphor and Potassium, so high production inputs are needed. Farmers’ participation was high, especially in the stages of technical design construction, land preparation and seed(lings) planting activities. Establishment of sustainable agroforestry demonstration plot at Kandis Resort is expected could encourage acceleration of Social Forestry implementation throughout Gedong Wani FMU areas.

Keywords: Demonstration  plot, farmer preference, plant species, sustainable agroforestry
