Traditional home-gardens surveyed in villages of the historical province of Transylvania of Romania are dedicated for cultivating crops, fruit rees, shrubs and ornamental plants as well as inside and outside urban planning areas. They are connected to the semi-natural and natural andscapes and as a consequence their role in the biodiversity conservation is high. However, this concept in Romania is not yet defined. The cope of this article is to reveal the high diversity of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture in Moșna commune from Sibiu county f Romania. Our results revealed that the commune is dominated for crops cultivation by maize, potatoes, and cabbage but not only. A series of rop species and landraces are unique for the region such as the 'Moșna cabbage’, the maize landraces 'Red of Moșna’ and 'Lăpușneag’. There re landowners experimenting new varieties or new introduced species improving their skills for implementing different agricultural practices nd saving seeds. Moreover, a series of other species are not officially recorded due to the constraints of the official forms in place. In his case they may become neglected crops species for the country at the official level. This situation can create the scene for ulnerabilities supporting their disappearance or crops erosion. It is the case of local carrots that disappeared due to the loosing of their apacity to save seeds as the species is cross pollinated. All these results support us to define the gastronomic footprint of the village as major component in the agricultural policy to support food security.
