Forest Park Background
- The FDB’s 2019 National SME Winner of the Year
- Forest Park enterprise operates under three key pillars of conservation, education, and ecotourism.
- The 100 acres of forestland is actually home to various wildlife flora, fauna, and native species. The business arm operates in order to generate enough income to maximize biodiversity conservation.
- The business promotes conservation for 35 years now. The agroforestry inspired integrated farming allows 70% of the food served for tourists to be “farm to table”. Guests pick their food straight from the farm.
- The farmhouse and the Lodge are 100% reliant on solar energy. Rainwater is harvested to meet basic needs and green waste produced at the lodge are recycled back into the farm as manure.
- Straws are made from plant stalks and through such practices the SME promotes wider environmental awareness for sustainable development and ecological stewardship.
- Trees from the forest that were damaged during TC Winston are now being cleared for sustainable logging and for making furniture.
