By hiking the trail you will be contributing directly towards the conservation and social development work of the partners within the conservancy. Some of the funds generated by the trail are re-invested by the conservancy into clearing alien vegetation,
managing fire and documenting and monitoring flora and fauna within the conservancy. Your meals along the route are made with fresh organic food produced by the trainees at the Growing the Future sustainable agriculture and life skills College on Grootbos.
All hikers on the trail get the opportunity to plant an indigenous tree as part of the Future Trees forest restoration project at Stinkhoutsbos � a beautiful indigenous forest that was badly burnt during a huge wild fire in 2006. The trees for this forest
restoration project have been locally grown by the students of the Green Futures Horticulture and life skills project
which you will visit on completion of the trail at Grootbos.
