The home garden can be used to raise many kinds of vegetable, fruits, staple crops, medicinal plants and spices as well as animals. Even a small plot of land, if well managed, can make a substantial contribution towards meeting household food needs and improving nutrition. These gardens have an established tradition and offer great potential for improving household food supplies.
