International Home Gardening for Nutrition Recipe Contest

We’ve had such a strong response to our blog post about flexible recipes from home gardens that we would like to hear from you about your recipes from your garden in your country.

It’s easy. Simply send a MS Word attachment to with your favorite recipe that uses vegetables/fruit/small livestock that you’ve raised in your home garden.

Please include photos of you, your garden, and/or the finished meal if possible. Let us know a little about your garden – for instance what you raise and what special challenges you face in your country (don’t forget to tell us what country you are from!).

We will compile these into an ‘International Garden for Nutrition Recipe Book’ and announce it in our next newsletter. The recipe book will be a free download – and you will be highlighted for your contribution.

Were hoping to hear from people from all over the world. People from over 170 countries subscribe to the newsletter: we want a recipe from each country: North and South!

You can use metric or English measurements.

The recipes should be submitted in this format:
