The research was conducted in Bausasran Subdistrict in Yogyakarta City, employing a descriptive analysis method with 40 samples of Women Farmer Groups’ members. The research results revealed that community participation in urban yard utilization activities was classified as active. The community’s active participation was indicated by the existence of “Kampung Sayur Bausasran”, developed by establishing nursery gardens, creating group gardens, making vegetable aisles, cultivating medicinal plants, cultivating horticultural crops, and catfish farming. Vegetable villages can provide good results for community economic empowerment if managed optimally.
