Reforest Fest 2023

A Restoration Celebration, Easter Weekend 2023

7 – 10 April 2023 | Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat

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 & theatre for the whole family – all whilst having a blast getting active for the environment. Help restore degraded land; attend workshops, talks & classes. Celebrate under the stars with local live music & DJ’s and delight in the wholesome food village.

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 a total of 105,645 trees, restoring forest habitat and furthermore helping to preserve and expand a forest that is home to many incredible, often endangered, species including the Cape leopard and honey badger.

Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat

The 2023 event is being held at Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat, which is located only 2.5 hours from Cape Town, nearby Gansbaai and Stanford. The stunning surroundings of Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat welcome explorers to its milkwood forests and fynbos trails, in addition to beautiful on-site accommodations.

This will be the third Reforest Fest to be held at this venue, which is also an ongoing Forests for Life Reforestation Partner of Greenpop.

The magnificent venue has accommodation on-site at the festival, you must book this separately with them here.
