Garden Route locals urged to join in mass rehabilitation of Eden 

Published: May 8th, 2018

Garden Route locals are urged to join Greenpop in the mass rehabilitation of the Eden District.

Greenpop Festival of Action - mass rehabilitation of the Eden District.Join Greenpop over three weeks as they plant thousands of trees, connect with local communities, partake in sustainability workshops and begin the process of regreening the Garden Route in the wake of the devastating fires of June 2017.

Greenpop, an award-winning social-environmental non-profit enterprise, is bringing their seventh Festival of Action to the Eden District this year to regenerate habitats and restore ecosystems, as well as creating mass environmental impact by planting indigenous trees, building beehives, holding eco-education workshops, and creating environmental art.

Locals are urged to join the movement in order to make this festival as much of a inaugural success as possible.

Whether you choose to join the festival a full time participant, sponsor a youth to partake in the event, donate to the festival itself, or join Greenpop on one of their weekly Open Plant Days, every aspect of involvement from the local community will make a significant impact.

Garden Route locals are offered a 20% discount on the festival ticket price when indicating that they live in the Eden District in their application form. This is a fully facilitated program which includes accommodation, meals, transport between activation sites, sustainability workshops and post-planting parties.

Greenpop is aiming to make this experience as inclusive and accessible as possible and are calling for sponsors to partially or fully fund eager applicants who would not otherwise afford to attend.
