With the outbreak of Covid-19 and amid lockdown, Sri Lankans began to nurture their own oases through home gardening. As gardening has boomed as residents under lockdown look to grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables, we Beaconites decided to launch the project  Swamposhitha to aware the readers about the crops that can be easily grown at home in the face of Covid- 19 pandemic and to provide a better knowledge on the nutritional value of those plants.

There Colombo Beacon conducted extensive studies on selected plant species and gathered information on the pros and cons of those crops.The study also looked at how each crop can be easily grown and the time spent inquiring about the diseases relevant to them.

The project was held for nearly three months offering technical advice to the public to undertake home gardening and making the readers interested in home gardening by emphasizing the benefits of growing food at home as a useful stress buster that ultimately supports outdoor family time.
