The decade of restoration begins.

All over the globe right now, people are looking towards a green recovery, to accelerate climate action and to build a better world. Let’s use this momentum to inspire change in our lives, to get active (not anxious) about the future of our planet – together.

The Eden Festival of Action is an environmental action gathering combining practical ecosystem restoration work like tree-planting, with a full line-up of workshops, talks and activities from sustainability experts. The evenings are filled with campfire sessions, storytelling and music from some of South Africa’s finest musicians. 

Be part of a growing, global, green movement.

Venue 2021: Wild Spirit Lodge

In 2021 we will be returning to Wild Spirit Lodge – located near Plettenberg Bay in the heart of the Garden Route, South Africa.

The area is surrounded by the indigenous forests, pristine beaches and the mountains of the Tsitsikamma National Park. The location is a perfect place to take a break in nature and give back to the surrounding area which is still suffering after the devastating 2017 fires.

Book now to be part of this fun, immersive sustainability experience!


In line with the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration beginning in 2021, which is advocating for the halt of global ecosystem degradation, this event aims to promote a new culture of restoration (of landscapes and self), highlighting its importance when trying to undertake the planet’s biggest issues such as climate change and food security. Get active supporting our work in the Garden Route area through:

  • Reforestation tree planting
  • Urban tree planting at local schools
  • Eco-education workshops
  • Mural painting
  • Alien clearing

Join us, and make an impact.
