Abstract

A. seeks to fill a lacuna of kitchen gardens in Latin America by examining the role of women and children within those gardens and the non-material functions their production supports. Material aspects of gardens centered on provision of extra food and religious/medicinal plants. Nonmaterial effects centered on educating children about cropping and nature. Study is based on fieldwork in three small cities in the Kaqchikel region of Guatemala. - (SLD)
