Sustainable home gardens
circular, vertical, traditional
Limited access to water resources, especially during
periods where precipitation decreases significantly, it
is the main constraint for families to grow their own
vegetables. Food security depend on the purchase of
products in the urban area.
Climate challenge
The implementation of home gardens isn't a new practice, however it has been adapted to respond to climatic
challenges that threaten food security and sovereignty of rural families. All types of home gardens are associated
to drip irrigation system whose inputs are rainwater harvested and production of organic fertilizer, which are also
low-cost solutions that allow to control moisture conditions. The vertical home garden is an option for families
whose cultivable area is very limited. The structure of the circular home garden enables water circulation and soil
moisture conservation. The humidity is monitored using a tensiometer as well as precipitation and temperature.
The practice emphasizes adaptation and food security, and contributes to mitigation with the management of
organic fertilizers.
Practice description
Implementation and results
Contribution to CSA pillars
At the same time as food is secured and diet is
improved, what mechanisms (eg markets, financial
incentives) can facilitate the permanent and
sustainable generation of additional income through
this practice throughout the year?

Poster: Sustainable home gardens circular, vertical, traditional

  • 1. CCAFS Latin America International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) Km. 17 Recta Cali-Palmira. Palmira, Valle del Cauca, Colombia Sustainable home gardens circular, vertical, traditional Limited access to water resources, especially during periods where precipitation decreases significantly, it is the main constraint for families to grow their own vegetables. Food security depend on the purchase of products in the urban area. Climate challenge The implementation of home gardens isn't a new practice, however it has been adapted to respond to climatic challenges that threaten food security and sovereignty of rural families. All types of home gardens are associated to drip irrigation system whose inputs are rainwater harvested and production of organic fertilizer, which are also low-cost solutions that allow to control moisture conditions. The vertical home garden is an option for families whose cultivable area is very limited. The structure of the circular home garden enables water circulation and soil moisture conservation. The humidity is monitored using a tensiometer as well as precipitation and temperature. The practice emphasizes adaptation and food security, and contributes to mitigation with the management of organic fertilizers. Practice description Implementation and results Contribution to CSA pillars At the same time as food is secured and diet is improved, what mechanisms (eg markets, financial incentives) can facilitate the permanent and sustainable generation of additional income through this practice throughout the year?
