Indonesian agricultural sector provides a high proportion of employment for the rural community, but the livelihood of the farmers is relatively low. Sending the farmers to non-formal education will enhance the livelihood of the community. In this study, we analyze the impact of farmer field school on the rural community livelihoods in Indonesia. Data were collected using a participatory approach from 270 farmer groups that completed farmer field school in Sumatra, Java, and Bali. The results show that the farmer field school generated positive impacts on five capitals. Farmers realized the benefits of participating in the field school. They could increase the efficiency of farming by applying technology innovations, knowledge and skills obtained from the field school. Shortly speaking, farmer livelihoods in the community have substantially enhanced.
