Vegetables are a class of foods highly valued from a nutritional point of view because they are rich in minerals and vitamins. Vegetable gardens, therefore, have the potential to diversify diets and improve the nutrition of the whole household. They can also generate and diversify income for poor households, as vegetables often fetch good prices in local and regional markets. A range of other benefits have also been associated with vegetable gardens, including contributing to women’s empowerment and even biodiversity. The purpose of this Guidance Note is to outline key issues for programmes to consider when designing and implementing a vegetable garden project.
