This research report discusses the historical significance and function of home gardens, offers a definition, and develops a policy-relevant typology based on ecological and socioeconomic determinants. Finally, a cross-cultural comparative review of the literature is undertaken. Despite increasing attention given by agricultural research organizations to small-scale farmers, household gardens continue to be neglected as an important subsistence strategy.
