The ‘Trees for Tomorrow’ campaign forms part of a series of projects inspired by Return to Origin’s awareness of the great value and power in reconnecting Youth with Nature.
In sowing seeds of promise and purpose today, we aspire towards leaving a legacy of healing and abundance for the generations who are to inherit the world tomorrow.
Thanks to donations from our communities and gifts of indigenous trees from the Kirstenbosch Nursery in Cape Town, ‘Return to Origin’ facilitates tree planting days (Vryground, on Mandela Day 2018 and Baphumela Fountain of Youth –Heritage Day- September 24, 2018 for example) . Seeds are sown, and trees are planted by the youth of the communities at the heart of this project. Over 40 trees have been planted in total in underserved comunities in 2018. Funds raised went towards the project’s endeavour to create a safe and nurturing environment for orphaned youth and assists Return to Origin to continue our work of re-connecting youth with nature.
Join us in growing a legacy worth leaving.

What you love you protect -THANK YOU .
When healing in the act of coming together in community, and hope in sowing seeds is made manifest, a powerful vision is cast upon the earth that speaks boldly of the heritage and preservation of the natural world.
In the initiatives with youth in underserved communities facilitated by ‘Return to Origin’, a connection to and protection of land and heritage is fostered in a move towards understanding the importance of conservation and sustainability. Participating in nature-youth programs has shown to encourage personal efficacy, interpersonal skills, environmental engagement and a renewed understanding of self in relation to the world. What you love you protect. Angelique Michaels, leader Indigenous Knowledge Leadership Program.
