The Reforest Fest Friends Weekend sees Greenpop bringing people back to nature to (re)connect, plant trees, learn and dance under the stars.
Guests arrive the Friday evening, pitch their tent and relax into a night of gentle tunes under the ancient indigenous forest canopy. Early Saturday morning sees an action-packed day of tree-planting and hands getting dirty, where guests help to restore an ecosystem that is one of the rarest and most endangered in the Western Cape. After planting thousands of trees, they return to camp for a shower and a forest party (featuring live bands) for them to celebrate their achievement. Sunday sees guests relaxing their bodies and stimulating their mind with fun, educational activities and workshops including guided forest walks, yoga, informative talks and hula-hooping.
Meals, tents and ablution facilities are available on site. More information available on the events official website.
