Abstract: Food security is one of the leading issues of many nations globally. The magnitude of malnutrition necessitates the need for nutrition education. Kitchen gardening can play a significant role in improving food security for rural households as well as middle-class urban households in developing countries like India. The study was conducted in the Anand district of middle Gujarat. A total of 100 respondents were selected for the study. The ex-post facto research design was adopted. For measuring the attitude of women towards kitchen gardening, the scale developed by the department of agricultural extension and communication were used. Data were collected through personal interviews using the pre-tested structured interview schedule. The results of the study stated that about half (51.00 per cent) of the respondents had positive to highly positive overall attitude towards kitchen gardening.
