Replant the Forest Festival is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that brings together music and entertainment with direct hands-on environmental action.
Many people are concerned about the environment, but far too many have become disillusioned and apathetic about their ability to have an impact. RTFF events bring them out of their homes and off of gloom-and-doom social media, and into a real-live gathering of fun people with the same concerns, top-shelf musical entertainment, and the chance to actually make a difference they can see.
But our effect doesn’t stop at the end of the festival.
RTFF attendees, having seen what they are capable of, bring this message to friends and family-- and bring them along for the next one. This creates communities of action that carry our work further, changing the mood from desperation to inspiration.
Nothing brings people together like the power of music. This also makes RTFF an effective, engine for collaboration across communities and organizations. Although we do love planting trees, RTFF provides a wide variety of ways to take action and restore the earth.
Our mission is to bring everyone into the great work of our time... while having a good time
What happens at the Festival or Event?
Land Restoration Projects
When you come to a Replant the Forest Festival event, we don’t only fill your ears and soul with live music. We fill your hands with land-restoration tools, young plantable saplings, and soil! From restoring degraded lands through planting, helping start tree nurseries, removing invasive species, and more projects RTFF lets attendees actually “do the work” of repairing their world. This experience ripples forth and brings together a growing community of people looking to do more.
Performances and Speakers
We also fill your soul with a culturally uplifting and transformative experience like no other.
Amazing musicians, DJs, and speakers will be the audio backdrop of your restoration experience. Imagine spending a day (or weekend) in a beautiful natural setting, dancing to an irresistible beat, and learning from experts how to create a regenerative future wherever you live. Replant the Forest Festival brings together the wild creativity of the festival world with focused, impact-driven activism.
Permaculture is a radical but also ancient method for turning land into sustainable, self-sufficient ecosystems where humans, plants, and animals support each other. RTFF is aligned with this philosophy, and some of our events offer ways for participants to put it into action.
Some events are day events and some are overnight jamborees! If you are connected to land that can host an overnight gathering please reach out!
