Increasing small-scale vegetable production is a key target for growing a more sustainable food system. At first glance, meeting this target seems straightforward. On closer inspection, particularly in contexts experiencing the on-going effects of climate uncertainty and economic uncertainty, it can be hard to achieve. Community education has a vital role to play.
This monograph outlines community education best practice principles for promoting and supporting small- scale vegetable production, marketing and consumption, based on a study conducted in Mindanao, The Philippines. It generates local insights for wider application. The monograph assembles a toolbox of replicable, and adaptable ideas and methods. The toolbox is of value to end users around the world seeking to grow more sustainable food systems.
