Home Gardens

“Worldwide, home gardens are a communitys most adaptable and accessible land resource and are an important component in reducing vulnerability and ensuring food security.   One way to reduce vulnerability or avoid risk is the diversification of accessible resources, such as useful plants.  Diversification not only serves as insurance against unexpected or disruptive events, but also provides many components that facilitate adaptive renewal following a disturbance.”
