The baseline survey was conducted in 20 home garden project districts. The main objectives of the survey were to: 1) establish the benchmark information of the project village development committees (VDCs) on home garden components; vegetables, fruits and small livestock diversity; dietary diversity; group members’ access to training on income generation activities and selling surplus vegetables of the project beneficiaries; and 2) utilise the basic information in refining home garden interventions.
