Ghassan Baliki, Dorothee Weiffen, Tilman Brück, and Gwendolyn Moiles‘ paper ‘Home garden interventions in crisis and emergency settings’ has been published in Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems.
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).
