The South African Nursery Association, or SANA, is a non-stock, non-profit organization established in 1947 to serve as a network platform that will work to represent the green industry and its interests. In addition, it also represents other related associations such as Allied Bulb and Seed Trade Association (ABSTA), Garden Center Association (GCA), Bedding Plant Growers Association (BPGA) and Growers Association. In an effort to ensure a deep talent pool and help deserving South African students, they have recently opened their South African Nursery Association bursary programme for the 2019 academic year.
