Afrikaburn wants everyone and anyone to discover Quaggafontein. Located in the Tankwa Karoo, this is the new permanent home of this internationally renowned Burning Man regional event.
Africaburn organisers describe the Ecotrip as “five fun-filled days of ecosystem restoration activities that lay the foundations for holistic land stewardship projects to come”.
What to expect on the Ecotrip
Over the five days, participants will be under the tutorship of members of the Afrikaburn team. Participants, or “Ecotrippers”, will start to move out from the homestead area and into the surrounding veld. Here various techniques will be applied to rehabilitate the soil and vegetation. Ecotrippers will also continue to work on the already-established food garden and permaculture initiatives.
According to the Africaburn team, the following can be expected over the five days:
- Ecosystem restoration
- Permaculture activities
- Educational talks about ecology and ecosystem funtions
- A mini burn with a chance to help out with constrction
- Opportunity for radical self-expression, making art and music
How to get involved
2021 marks the start of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. Thus, EcoTrip is the perfect opportunity to contribute to this global effort.
“Afrikaburn invites all to come experiment, play and help build the world anew.”
