Forest in One Day Deinze: on 17 March 2024 Deinze will become greener

Another Jane Goodall Institute’s tree-planting event, Forest in One Day, will take place on Sunday, March 17th, 2024. Luminus and Jane Goodall Institute Belgium will work together to plant more than 24000 trees. Quite the task, and any assistance is appreciated!

From 10 am to 4 pm, you are welcome to attend and assist with planting. The more excitement (and boots), the less experience is needed. To manage all that planting, we are engaging Forest Fwd, real specialists with a heart for forests. Volunteers from Jane Goodall Institute will also be on hand to help.

Hot drinks, food, as well as kid-friendly entertainment and information booths from the collaborating partners, will be available during this Forest in One Day to ensure that the volunteers are not left out in the cold.

The tree planting event will take place near Rekkelinge. The number of parking spaces is limited. Please come preferably by bicycle or on foot.
