Find out how families in Indonesia are improving their diets by growing vegetables, fruit and other crops at home.

Home gardens in Indonesia have great potential to contribute to food and nutrition security. Home yard area in Indonesia is 10.3 million hectares or 14 % of total agricultural land.

Indonesia’s “Home of Foods (HFs)” initiative encourages people to utilize their front and/or back yards as a source of family food by planting a variety of vegetables, fruits, tubers and medicinal plants as well as raising livestock.

AVRDC supports this program through different activities of the USAID-funded “Vegetables for Indonesia” project and the European Union supported Satnet Asia project.
