Purpose of the Study: This study aims to explore villages’ revitalization activities through the development of bamboo plantation conservation and by using the Community-Based Tourism (CBT) model within the perspectives of natural conservation, cultural preservation, and economic development.

Methodology: This study employs qualitative methods through interviews and observation of the Papringan market in Temanggung, Central Java, Indonesia. The interview session was conducted among Papringan market management and community members (who are involved in the market’s activities), policymakers, and tourists, through snowball sampling.

Main Findings: The results revealed that the Papringan market was able to revitalize the village and impact nature conservation, cultural preservation, and economic development. The Papringan market was able to sustain the bamboo garden, keep environment green, make use of the bamboo, and transform it into products. The Papringan market community members enable the young generation to inherit the local wisdom and values and introduce their culture to tourists. There is an increase in the community members’ income and progress in the infrastructure, which supports the community’s economic activities.

Applications of this study: Revitalization of villages through bamboo garden conservation provides benefits to stakeholders as it related to the tourist spot of Papringan market, can sustain the natural environment, and add to economic growth.

Novelty/Originality: The study is conducted to conserve the bamboo garden in sustaining the Papringan market as a tourist spot, as it adds value to the community.
