Celebrating Heritage Day, Arbour Month, Cool as Folk 6 and the arrival of Spring!

Cool_As_Folk_4_366x322It’s the beginning of Spring and Cape Town will soon start buzzing with events. It’s also Arbour month as well as the month where South Africans celebrate Heritage Day, so there is lots of excitement in the air.

Arbour Day– This year marks 30 years since South Africa started celebrating Arbour Day – a holiday where people are encouraged to plant and care for trees (how awesome!). It originated in Nebraska, USA, on 10 April, 1872 and an estimated 1 million trees were planted that day.

Heritage Day– the 24th September sees South Africans celebrating the diverse cultural heritage of our beautiful rainbow nation – a time to cherish our ROOTS!

– naturally, the time of year to celebrate and bloom.

Put this all together and you get a pretty exciting month! Greenpop is celebrating by planting trees all month long (gift a tree HERE) and hosting the 6th Cool as Folk party at The Side Show, in Cape Town on Monday 23rd September, ringing in Heritage Day and celebrating our ROOTS by partying for TREES!

Having hosted the second TREEmendously successful Trees for Zambia Action Event in July, Greenpop is ready to bring the party back to Cape Town and welcome the arrival of Spring.

Like the previous Greenpop Cool as Folk parties, all proceeds from ticket sales will go towards developing future Greenpop projects to plant trees and spread eco education and inspiration. Headlined by South Africa’s number-1 solo act, Jeremy Loops, the event is open to those who not only appreciate great music but also have either caught the Greenpop bug or are willing to expose themselves to some tree loving.
