L'économie du potager en Biélorussie et en Russie

Abstract : Two models of keeping a vegetable garden, a widespread activity among city-dwellers in the post-Soviet world, can be discerned. Characterized by a low (or negative) return on investment, the “counterhandicap” model is underlaid by a rationale of improving the quality of the food consumed, whereas the “entrepreneurial” model makes it possible to earn a real income. Fieldwork and statistics serve to place gardening in the perspective of household economics and to qualify its contribution to “survival”.
