Equipping women with knowledge on food preparation and nutrition can

benefit the entire household. It is for the reason that cooking is mostly done by

women as part of their chores. The study surveyed 582 poor rural women from

Jessore and Barisal district of Bangladesh. There were 479 women used for the

control group while the remaining 103 were used as intervention. This study tested

whether training women on homestead vegetable gardening can increase production

and consumption of vegetables, which are vital prerequisites for improving nutrition.

Women in the intervention group were given a one-day training, basic home

gardening materials, and a nutrition seminar. Results show that training women

increased the diversity of their production, cropping of leafy vegetables, frequency of

harvesting, supply of nutrients, and involvement in the home garden. The average

amount of vegetables that were harvested from the intervention group's home garden

was significantly higher (p<0.01) compared to those in the control group. Women

who received training were able to significantly (p<0.01) produce greater quantities of

plant proteins (+171%), calcium (+284%), iron (+172%), vitamin A (+189%), and

vitamin C (+290%). Therefore, the results of this study support the hypothesis that

training women on home gardening can increase the household's supply of nutrients.
