Pages: 195 pp.
The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA), together with the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR), University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB), Department of Education (DepEd) Division of Laguna, and three of its sister regional centers under the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), organized the "Training of Trainers on Scaling Up the School-plus-home Gardens Model in Southeast Asia" on 18-21 April 2018 at the SEARCA Headquarters, in line with efforts toward sustaining and building on the successes of and lessons learned from the School and Home Gardens Project (SHGP).
The SGHP or the "Participatory Action Research on School and Community-Based Food and Nutrition Program for Literacy, Poverty Reduction and Sustainable Development" was pilot-tested from 2016 until 2017 in five elementary and one secondary schools in Laguna, Philippines. It aimed to test the effectiveness of an integrated, participatory, and science-based approach to school gardening in improving nutrition, education, and economic well-being of children in the participating schools. Simultaneous with SGHP's implementation in the Philippines, project pilots were initiated in Indonesia, led by the SEAMEO Southeast Asian Center for Tropical Biology (BIOTROP), SEAMEO Southeast Asian Regional Center for Food and Nutrition (RECFON), and SEAMEO Southeast Asian Regional Open Learning Center (SEAMOLEC).
