SOUTH AFRICA

EcoPlanet Bamboo owns and operates the 1,200 acre Kowie Bamboo Farm in South Africa's Eastern Cape. This pilot farm is the first commercial bamboo farm in Southern Africa and represents a global first in many respects:

 

- The first bamboo farm globally to successfully transition tissue culture bamboo plantlets from a laboratory setting to a plantation setting at scale.

- The first successful regeneration of soils that had been destroyed by over a century of mechanized and high intensity agriculture.

- The first African bamboo farm to successfully receive forest sustainability certification (FSC).

In addition to the Kowie Bamboo Farm, EcoPlanet operates an on-site manufacturing facility, and an R&D laboratory.
