Dates

All ages Week: 25 Sept - 2 Oct 2022 a week for all ages

Youth Week: 2 - 9 Oct 2022 designed specifically for high school students. Parents and chaperones welcome.

Before you start fundraising, please be sure to apply for the Eden Festival of Action here. Once you have completed the form we will send you the Trees for Fees guide, and you can start fundraising. Not only will we use the funds you raise to plant trees during the project, but for every tree raised you will also get a discount on your ticket*.

Goal

1 Week = 80 Trees 

2 Weeks = 150 Trees

(1 Tree = R120/$8)

Deadline: 1 September 2022


If you meet your goal you will receive a free festival ticket and a space in a Greenpop shared tent.


Your space will be confirmed once you have raised 10 trees.If you do not meet your goal you will receive a discount on your ticket relevant to the number of trees raised. E.g. if you raise 25% of your goal you will get a 25% discount on your ticket.

*Unfortunately it’s not possible to raise funds for trees to cover the costs of transport from your hometown to the event and back.

4.  Click “Start Fundraising” - Log in to GivenGain or sign up for an activist account if you don’t already have one.

5. Set up your activist project. Be sure to tell everyone why you are raising funds for trees and why you would like to attend the Eden Festival of Action!

10. After the Trees for Fees cut-off date (1 September 2022), Greenpop will check how many trees you have raised through your GivenGain activist project and thus how much of a discount you are eligible for. 

11. We will send you your discount code and further booking information.

**Please note that if you decide not to come, we will not be able to refund your tree donations but we will still plant the trees on your behalf and be very grateful!

After the programme, you will receive one certificate with GPS coordinates of the locations where your trees were planted so you can share this with your donors to celebrate! Please note that the trees are planted in various Greenpop projects and not all in the Eden District.

Have fun!
