Summary

Ugandan homegarden systems are sustainable small-scale solutions for food security and conservation containing a great diversity of native plant species and preserving the associated time-tested traditional knowledge for nutrition and conservation. Furthermore, the people of Uganda have a diversity of uses for these native species. However, these systems and traditions are under threat for a variety of reasons. Organic may hold some of the keys for the revitalization of these oases of diversity and culture. The organic markets in Uganda now sell only a few species but can embrace the great diversity through increasing access to organic markets for more small producers and indigenous plant species.
