[Dates 23 - 25 September 2016] Join us and have fun, plant trees, learn lots, boogy the nights away with local musos and DJ’s, eat well, attend environmental workshops and experience the beauty of Hogsback and Terra-Khaya. We will plant thousands of trees and grow more enchanted forests in the Amathole Mountains. Hogsback’s incredible Yellowwood forests are home to the endangered Cape Parrot, Samango Monkey and other endangered species. By rehabilitating the wattle invaded land and planting indigenous trees in this unique cloud sanctuary, we will be growing diversity and enhancing the abundance of life in our threatened forests and adjacent grasslands. 

This year, the festival is hosted by Terra-Khaya “Earth Home Project” with Greenpop partnering with us to host the tree planting day. All who attend can expect to enjoy hikes in Hogsback’s incredible forests, attend and participate in workshops, do yoga, plant trees, enjoy delicious meals, live music and visit the oldest Yellowwood in the Eastern Cape!

Two months after the Reforest Fest in Hogsback I sit and wonder about how our little trees are doing. I dream about the day I can return to a special forest on Terra Khaya. I am so grateful for Eco Atlas to have made me aware of the Green Pop movement! The fun that was had to plant a mass of trees with stunning people from across the country has left me following when similar events are scheduled to happen. I certainly don't want to miss out.

My friend and I had an awe-inspiring weekend at Hogsback in the Eastern Cape. It was truly beautiful to be in the presence of so many like-minded, green-loving people at the Reforest Festival. I arrived back home, in Durban, feeling revived and inspired. I look forward to being involved in another one of GreenPop's tree-planting events in the future.
