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.


– Tuesday, January 18.  Watch this space for future dates.  In the meantime, subscribing to our monthly newsletter will keep you up-to-date with all activities.

SEED SWAP   Saturday, 29 January.  11.30am – 1.00pm
Seed swap Jan22 logo snip
Who? This is Turn Lyme Green’s first seed swap – on the National Seed Swap Day
What? Bring seeds to share with other gardeners or to find some you would love to plant
Where? The Driftwood Café, The Baptist Church, at the top of Broad Street, Lyme Regis 

I don’t have seeds to swap, can I still join in?   Absolutely! YES!
Everyone has to start somewhere, and we want to get everyone growing

Are the seeds free? Yes! We want as many people as possible to grow food and to get into gardening generally. Money should be no barrier to doing so. 

Seed swaps have arisen to help maintain heritage varieties that might otherwise become unavailable. The aim is to distribute these open-pollinated seeds freely to local gardeners to preserve local and regional varieties and to encourage growers to save seed from them and return with them to the seed swap in the following year.


PLASTIC FREE LYME REGIS.  Visit our sister web site for Plastic Free Lyme Regis. 

In June 2018 Lyme Regis gained the 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 – to receive this accolade. Now in our fourth year, we continue to work with our local council and  businesses, organisations and residents, taking steps to reduce single-use plastics.


Success!  The Town Council has put in a Refill point on the front, by the Amusement Arcade.

Many Lyme Regis businesses have joined the Refill scheme which receives so much national publicity.  Refill is a free tap water initiative designed to reduce plastic pollution and promote healthy hydration by making refilling a water bottle easy, social and rewarding!  Hats off to the  businesses taking part in Lyme Regis and nearby.. as others join we will let you know.    If any business wishes to join Refill UK follow the link.  They co-ordinate locations and let us know too so we can add your name to our list.  There is also an app  created by City to Sea which can show ReFill locations near where you are.  Nationally there are over 23,000 members.
