Turn Lyme Green promotes sustainable living in Lyme Regis.  Set up in 2007, we engage the community in environmental issues.  We meet regularly, plan campaigns and events, and have fun. Collaboration with other environmental groups in West Dorset and beyond is an important part of keeping everyone informed and up to date.  TLG acts local, thinks global.

NOVEMBER 12:  Organic: what does it mean and is it worth it?

Alexa has lived and worked at Lower Hewood Farm since 2008, alongside a small team producing Soil Association certified organic food for local households and restaurants. The talk aims to highlight the ups and downs of maintaining organic status against a backdrop of changing attitudes and debates about environmentally responsible food production and consumption. Alexa will also talk about learning the value of community and collaboration in the farming context, and discuss how these vital relationships have profoundly influenced her understanding of farming and the wider world.

SUCCESS! In June 2018 Lyme Regis gained title, Plastic Free Lyme Regis, from the Plastic Free Communities initiative of Surfers Against Sewage. Lyme Regis is the first town in Dorset – and 24th in the country out of over 300 applying – to receive this accolade.
