What is a GCA and why should you visit one?
Come and learn about the fabulous benefits of our quality-approved garden centres and what makes them stand out.
- As you know, Life is a Garden is the marketing branch of The South African Nursery Association, known as SANA for short. To become a SANA member, garden centres and home stores must meet a series of criteria and evaluations set out by experienced committee members. SANA’s goal is to set an industry benchmark and maintain the standard of their world-class retailers.
- GCA stands for the Garden Centre Association, striving to present a professional image of the horticultural industry and encourage professional business practices through a code of conduct. You can identify a GCA by the green sign in the front of the store, or even better, you can access our nationwide directory via the website.
- Each year, there is also an exciting GCA competition that awards the Garden Centre of Excellence title to the best SA has to offer. Garden centres, home stores, and growers are judged according to their plants, products, service, and overall customer experience.
To find your nearest GCA, visit our website at www.lifeisgarden.co.za and follow the Garden Centres tab on the top menu.
