Home Gardens For Resilience and Recovery (HG4RR)

HG4RR is an international network of expert researchers and practitioners from South and East Asia and Europe that works to advance knowledge of topics related to home gardens, resilience, food security, and home garden interventions in crisis settings. The HG4RR network has partners in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Germany, the Philippines, Nepal, Thailand, and India.

We aim to deepen our understanding of small-scale home gardens in vulnerable households living under extreme uncertainty or in humanitarian crisis settings in order to inform policy and development interventions. We are particularly interested in understanding the ways that home gardens can be used as a coping strategy to strengthen food and nutritional security and resilience, and how they contribute to women’s empowerment and peace-building.

To join the HG4RR newsletter email list, please contact Gwen Moiles, Network Administrator, at hg4rr@isdc.org.

The HG4RR Network in hosted by the Leibniz Institute of Vegetable and Ornamental Crops and funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Since October 2019 we have hosted several experts in a series of virtual talks about the challenges and opportunities of home garden interventions. For more information about past and future webinars and a full list of guest speakers, please visit our webinar page.
