Abstract:
A garden has its beauty. It exists for aesthetic purposes, like a flower garden. But when a garden like a kitchen garden or vegetable garden is put to use it becomes a source of nutritional security and useful for fulfilling human nutrition. It also becomes a source of income for the women of the families, particularly in the rural areas. This study highlights the same. A vegetable garden typically includes divided areas of land, intended to grow one or two types of plant or many varieties. It is usually located to the rear of a property in back yard of the house. It is also a mode of earning and increasing the nutritional quality of the food a family needs. During the year (2018-19) front line demonstration was conducted in Nutri Smart Village (7 villages), Gariyaband District at back yard nutritional garden for the purpose of enrichment of balance nutrient diet of the rural community and participation of rural women. The study reveals that after investing a bare minimum amount of Rs. 300 in vegetable crops production a total profit of ten times i.e. Rs. 2500 to 3000 can be obtained and can improve diet and income of farmer families of the rural areas. This would not only enhance the income of the families but would also help in getting a proper balanced diet to the family in the country where nutritional requirement lacks in our daily food.
