Inspiring people to re-imagine their relationship to their world


Trees for Tomorrow is a significant symbol of our origins that represents our work, with youth and nature, leaving a legacy, planting seeds and preservation of our heritage. Last year we planted close to 100 trees in underserved communities in Cape Town.

We were assisted by children and youth from the communities who all pitched in to plant. It is a powerful vision to witness a child gently planting the roots of a tree in an urban desert, beset by violence on a daily basis. The action of a 7 year old pouring water onto the tree while the community make prayers for peace for the future is the legacy of the vision for Return To Origin’s Guardians For Nature.

We planted in honor of Arbor Month and Heritage month again in 2019 and we will be planting this September in collaboration with African Constellations.  Watch this space. Thanks to Kirstenbosch Nursery.
