While home gardens are popular among donors and NGOs, the evidence base for their impacts is weak. Using a three-pronged approach (triangulating evidence from academic literature, expert discussion (World Café), and a practitioner survey) Baliki et al. provide a comprehensive summary of the evidence on home garden interventions in this article.
The authors identify a significant gap between existing research evidence and current needs and practices, particularly in crisis-affected contexts.
The article is based on previous work conducted for the Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops (IGZ).
