Abstract: Rawa Pening is a natural lake with strategic geographical location. It has many potential and is located 9 km away from the City of Salatiga. Rawa Pening is situated in the middle of the triangle of three major cities in Central Java; Solo, Semarang, and Yogyakarta. Its existence; potential, history, etc. has been widely reported, however the highlighted issue is the uncontrolled growth of water hyacinth. This plant covers most of the surface of the waters and has become one significant issue ever since. Water hyacinth has brought along a big dilemma in the communities; it can be viewed both as a potential benefit or a damaging threat. Ecologically, this plant becomes a threat since it threatens the existence of the lake through acceleration of silting, reduction of water pH quality, aquaculture damage through animals or pests, disruption of water transportation, and more. In the sense of socioeconomic however, water hyacinth can actually strengthen the economic foundation of the neighborhood of the Rawa Pening. The scope of water hyacinth utilization which was born from the weeds to its transformation into commodity has been the background of this research. The concept of co-modification (the title of this paper) is to describe the patterns made by the local community in exploiting and processing the "weeds" into an economic sales-value commodity. In addition to the study of economics, social capital studies are also highlighted by the author. The social capital is the main capital in the water hyacinth utilization where individuals play their roles benefiting each other, thus forming the habitual concept of patterns of utilization and management of water hyacinth. A balance between Rawa Pening’s water hyacinth exploitation utilization and peat soil brings the concept of sustainability. This happens when economic development is at the same time supported by xviii social development without damaging the environment. This is reflected in the efforts of water hyacinth utilization and peat soil, where more and increasing water hyacinth and peat soil based products are made and will eventually reduce the environmental burden of silting and ecological problems in Rawa Pening. When they all meet, the concept of sustainable development can be achieved on such level.
