Reforest Fest 2024

VENUE:    Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat, Stanford

Greenpop's hosting its annual restoration event, Reforest Fest, at Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat this upcoming Easter weekend (29 March - 1 April 2024).

Reforest Fest is an annual restoration celebration that brings people together to plant thousands of trees while enjoying a celebration like no other. It’s a festival for everyone and whether you celebrate Easter or not, there is much to be grateful for over this long weekend.

Where creativity meets participation, join in the diverse array of entertainment with interactive art and theatre for the whole family – all whilst having a blast getting active for the environment. Help restore degraded land and attend workshops, talks and classes. Celebrate under the stars with local live music and DJ’s and delight in the wholesome food village.

The Reforest Fest is also proud to present exclusive wine tastings curated underneath the banner "Wines in the Wild" – a series of wine experiences at the event. These include our Conservation Wine Tent in collaboration with WWF South Africa, Sunday Harvest Feast celebrating the bounty of the Overberg, as well as a delectable chocolate, honey and wine pairing.

Since 2011, Greenpop’s biggest tree-planting event of the year has always been the Reforest Fest!

By facilitating attendees to plant between 5,000 and 10,000 indigenous trees each year, this event contributes towards Greenpop’s Uilenkraal Forest Restoration Project which aims to restore degraded forest patches at the Platbos Forest Reserve and Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat.

So far, the project has planted over 110,000 trees, restoring forest habitat and furthermore helping to preserve and expand a forest that is home to many incredible, often endangered, species, such as our elusive apex predator, the Cape Leopard. Other creatures that make use of the indigenous forests for their survival include Bushbuck, Large-spotted Genet, and baboons.
