This training package targets agricultural extension agents and other field workers in Southeast Asia in order to strengthen their ability to assist households and communities in improving food production and adding nutritional value to their diets. 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.
