Every year Greenpop, a tree-planting and social development organisation, activates a reforestation festival in the ancient Platbos Forest in the Western Cape. Platbos, a relic forest with milkwoods of over 1 000 years old, is vulnerable to runaway fires and encroaching alien vegetation.

Indigenous forests are rare and endangered ecosystems covering less than 0.05% of the Western Cape. The public are invited to spend a weekend planting trees, camping, listening to live music and enjoying forest walks from 11-13 March 2016. Check out the incredible drone footage of this year’s reforest fest…
