Greetings, my wife and I are passionate about gardening, especially growing fruits and vegetables. We already live in the tropics (Hawai'i) and are very familiar with tropical plants and foods. We love Indonesian food, music and culture in general. We're wondering if it's possible to buy a small piece of land in a rural area on Java with low cost of living to have a small garden, like 1 acre. (I'm a US citizen.) We are interested in humble, rustic living conditions, like a very small, cheap home, and blending in with the lifestyle of a rural area, not living in a city or in a nice apartment or condo. I would be grateful for any insight on the cost or legalities of owning land in Indonesia. We are only interested in wet climates where there is abundant durian to eat.
