Last year Headquarters Security Forces - Jaffna (SF-J) organized a Home Garden project to boost the economy of poor families in the peninsula. Soldiers serving in respective Brigades helped 215 farmers to prepare the lands, gave seeds and trained the farmers on producing organic fertilizer for their cultivation. At the end, the farmers who owned the best home gardens were given valuable prizes by the Headquarters SF-J.

In another such project, 552 Brigade of Iyakkachchi distributed 2000 high quality jack plants among the civilians in the Pachchilaippalli area on 12th February to further encourage them in home gardening.
