Abstract: The Thengal-Kacharis, belonging to the Boro-Kachari ethnic groups are one of the most ancient inhabitants of Assam with rich tradition and cultural history. The bari or homestead gardening has had great significance from the point of conservation, consumption and management of biodiversity. Women of this community have played a key role in sustainable use of bari bioresources through various practices and knowledge systems that have been passed from generation to generation. In the paper, the crops diversity and their arrangement in a Thengal Kachari’s bari along with some the traditional practices followed in sustainable management of bari- bioresources have been discussed.
