Greenpop Reforest Fest 2022

During the first weekend of April, I had the honour of attending the annual Reforest Fest. Nature lovers came together to make a difference by planting a total of 5 064 indigenous trees.

The Reforest Fest is an annual tree-planting festival held by local environmental non-profit organisation Greenpop in Stanford. Their 2022 event was held at Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat, right next to Platbos Forest Nature Reserve.

Festivalgoers not only had the opportunity to help restore degraded land, but also to attend workshops, talks, and classes; dance under the stars with local musicians and DJs; and enjoy delicious food and drinks.

The sponsors of the event were the Western Cape Government, CapeNature, Cape Whale Coast, Overstrand Municipality, Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat, Platbos Forest Reserve, BOS, WWF South Africa, and Wellness Warehouse.
