Most people love a good music festival and what is there not to love? Music, camping, great food and bands. Well there is a festival that I found out about called the Greenpop Platbos Forest Festival and it combines the above mentioned and some good old saving the environment!

The festival aims to help reconnect people with nature and promote reforestation. “Ultimately, Greenpop Platbos Reforest Fest combines a strong reforestation effort with the fun and entertainment of a music festival, using the opportunity of staying in a magical forest to inspire participants. Camping is in the ancient forest (the part that remains intact) and the planting happens on the edge that has been deforested for cultivation over the decades, “says Lauren O’Donnell
Greenpop Director.

The Reforest Fest will take place over two weekends in May and caters for families with kids – the Family Fest from 9-11 May. At the Family Fest, they’ll be planting 3000-4000 trees in the ancient Platbos Forest just outside of Gansbaai, as well as fun and educational forest activities for all ages. Tree planting, forest dancing, and a night under the stars! I think it could be a lot of fun! The Friends Fest (with a bit more of a Saturday night party vibe) from will run from 16-18 May.
