Every ticket plants trees

Sprout Up events are free. Well – sort of.

You pay the price of a cup of coffee to show your commitment and reserve your seat at an event. 100% of the ticket sales are donated to planting trees and to build a sustainable future.

We have partnered with OneTreePlanted.org, a non-profit organization dedicated to global reforestation. Join us on our quest as global citizens and
photographers to protect the world we [capture].
