We work on urban greening, reforestation, and food growing projects, and educate people through practical workshops. Greenpop was founded in 2010 and has since planted over 70 000 trees at schools and other urban sites as well as forests and farms across South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania.
Urban Greening: With an emphasis on environmental education, these projects concentrate on planting trees in undergreened urban settings, especially schools, community centres and educares. A mixture of fruit and indigenous trees are planted to re-instill a pride of place and address food security issues.
Reforestation: Our small-scale reforestation projects generally take place in conservation and/or protected areas which require indigenous forest restoration. Trees are planted in a way which mimics their natural growth in the wild, therefore increasing biodiversity and creating carbon sinks.
