Multistoried Agroforestry Garden System in West Sumatra, Indonesia

While home gardens are often a go-to for both nutrition and income generation activities, they have also been studied in the context of different ecologies. This paper explores a traditional agroforestry garden system that provides “both subsistence and commercial products, which supplement rice production.” As the links between nutrition, income and environmental stewardship become better understood, this type of system thinking may provide ideas.
