Siyazama Community Garden Association (SCAGA)

SCAGA, in Khayelitsha, is one of hundreds of community gardens that Abalimi has launched. It is one of the biggest community gardens, at 5000 m2. It is here that we have proved that formal jobs can be created on 500m2 or less. SCAGA is also an ecological oasis, where a wide range of birds and indigenous fauna thrive in the Cape floral windbreaks. SCAGA proved to the City that community can utilise open spaces responsibly. SCAGA (est 1995), is the "Lighthouse Project" which launched a movement!
