DEEP AT THE REFOREST FEST
March 20, 2019 Dyer Island Conservation Trust
The 2019 intake of the Dyer Island Conservation Trust’s Environmental Education Programme (DEEP), joined Greenpop’s Treevolution Reforest Festival this weekend in Platbos. This was an Eco-friendly, Zero Waste event for families to rebuild this indigenous ancient forest. It was a weekend filled with fun activities, puppet shows, forest walks, talent show and music and a platform to educate people about the importance of trees. Over 500 people attended this camp and ±2000 trees were planted on Saturday. “The DEEP kids enjoyed themselves and loved the tents. This was their first time camping. They had the opportunity to mingle with other children from different schools and to experience vegetarian meals. Special thanks to Wilfred Chivell and the staff of Marine Dynamics for the support of this outing,” said Trust educator, Pinkey Ngewu.
