Cultivating the values of ecological wisdom in fostering a love for the environment through social studies learning is so important today because it can provide solutions to the negative impact of human anthropocentric views and provide insight into the nation's culture's knowledge. This research aims to provide a cultural description of the ecological village community groups who have local wisdom in the environment. The value of local knowledge is internalized in social studies learning to build a harmonious relationship between humans and nature. This study uses a qualitative approach to a new ethnographic type. Subjects are vital informants in the ecological village community. The results showed that the ecological village community had local wisdom, including socio-cultural values, including helping each other (―gotong royong‖), shame culture. Then the value of environmental care includes the value of environmental sustainability, education, and waste management. The value of caring for the environment takes organic farming system activities, prohibitions raising roads, environmental planning patterns, healthy bazaar activities for waste bank management, and hand skills in utilizing waste. This study's considerations can be a reference or as a source of sociocultural-based social studies learning at various levels of formal, non-formal, and informal education.
