Dear GlobalGiving Friends, here is a wonderful example of how community gardens can take over otherwise unused space. The Siyazama Urban Allotment Garden Association began in 1995 on 5000m2 of unutilised land under powerlines. Today it has expanded to three hectares involing 5 different community gardens , all of whcih are cultivated by surrounding community members. They all provide for their families but also sell surplus to the local community and via various marketing channels that place a premium on their produce.

The pic (selected attachment # 1 below} included herewith shows the extent of the gardens and their beautiful effect within the surrounding deset-like areas.

We hope you are inspired as much as we are by the progress made by the Siyazama Allotment Garden Association.

Best regards

Rob Small
