The weather conditions were just right for the fires to spread and cause havoc during June 2017 in the Garden Route, South Africa. Unfortunately, the extreme nature of these fires as well as the extent of the damage was exacerbated and fueled by the extensive and uncontrolled presence of alien plant species in the area. These plants also cause extreme erosion as they have more of a damaging impact on the soil than that of a local fynbos fire. The eroded soil and debris threatens the quality and sources of water in the area, as well as the healthy ecosystems.
We are joining Greenpop in their Festival of Action were we will be planting indigenous trees and remove alien plant species to prevent a disaster like this from happening again and support the natural eco systems.

We dig trees,
and we dig you. 💚
