Hive Ecosystems is part of the Hive group, based in South Africa.
Hive Ecosystems was established in 2021 to initiate a land restoration project. In 2022, the team secured 7,307 ha land for long term land transformation/restoration in the Albany Thicket biome. The project will restore parcels of land which has been degraded and depleted of Carbon, Nitrogen and minerals from years of intensive over grazing and agricultural farming.
Hive Ecosystems has started introducing millions of spekboom plants to the depleted areas in order to rewild the natural landscape and nurture carbon from the growing foliage, with the aim to plant around 9 million cuttings in coming years. The project will not only be beneficial in terms of carbon sequestration and land conservation, but local communities will benefit from an increased supply in jobs required for the projects.
