Plant More Than Your Feet In The Platbos Forest

Over the years, more than 55 000 trees have been planted during the festival. Come dig in!

Get your hands dirty and immerse your roots in nature with the whole family at the Greenpop Reforest Fest in the Platbos Forest in the Overberg region. The festival takes place over two consecutive weekends in March.

Although both weekends are suitable for kids and teens, one weekend focuses on families (15–17 March) and the other weekend has less focus on child-friendly activities (22–24 March). Both weekends offer great vibes, tree planting, camping, live music, yoga, meditation, forest walks and fun for all ages.

This year’s celebration of planting, music, heart and soil is going to be even further reaching, with more trees to plant and a more diverse live music offer.

ABOUT THE PLATBOS FOREST
Platbos Reserve is a unique indigenous forest located in the Overberg region and is home to ancient tree specimens (some of which are over 1 000 years old).

Unfortunately, unsustainable land use caused the forest to be denuded and taken over by alien vegetation. To set this right, Greenpop collaborated with the Platbos Conservation Trust to start alien vegetation clearing alongside a proactive planting regime to set this right.

To date, more than 55 000 trees have been planted during the festival alone.

FAMILY WEEKEND
The Reforest Fest on the weekend of 15–17 March 2019 invites families to unplug with some unforgettable quality family time in the forest. There is family-friendly entertainment and plenty of kids’ activities (games, crafting, theatre, talent show and more) and live music, workshops, yoga and forest adventures for all ages.
