Are you planning to be in Cape Town this March? Support our responsible travel partners and join Greenpop’s 7th annual ReForest Fest
To be held in the beautiful Platbos Forest Reserve, this is your chance to (re)connect with yourself, your fellow humans and with nature and be part of the ‘TREEvolution.’
Each year, Greenpop hosts the Reforest Fest over two special weekends and there have been nearly 35,000 trees planted to date.
The Friends Weekend (March 17-19) is for people who would like to get their hands dirty and make a positive impact on the environment. As well as planting thousands of trees, ReForest Fest goers will enjoy eco-talks, yoga, live music and much more. While the Friends Weekend activities and talks are tailored to adults, all ages are welcome at both festival weekends!
The Family Weekend (March 10-12) allows parents and children to connect in nature while planting trees. An ethical way to experience Africa with your brood, this is the perfect opportunity to unplug in the great outdoors and learn lessons about the planet.
We are providing transport to the event, so be TREEmendous, purchase your ticket and help save our planet!
If you’re travelling with us later in the year, why not add a tree to your safari booking and help to compensate for the carbon you’ll be using on your trip! Your tree will be planted by Greenpop as part of its urban greening and reforestation projects in Southern Africa. Once your tree has been planted, you will receive a certificate with the GPS co-ordinates, so you’ll know exactly where it’s growing!
Who is Greenpop?
Greenpop is a social enterprise on a mission to (re)connect people with the planet. They plant trees through urban greening and reforestation projects, spread environmental education, and activate people through green workshops and events.
Greenpop was founded in 2010 and has since planted over 70,000 indigenous and fruit trees at schools and other urban sites, community farms as well as forests across South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania. More than the number of trees, Greenpop is inspired by the 132,000 hands that have helped to plant the trees and the further thousands that have joined Greenpop’s eco-education programmes and made a commitment to be custodians of our beautiful planet.
