Climate change and increasing energy costs will alter our way of life - how we work, shop, travel and live will need to adapt.
Transition Lostwithiel is about using our own creativity and talent to build a closer and more resilient community for everyone to enjoy. It's about making a transition from an unsustainable way of life to a sustainable one.

Make History and apply for a tree - Transition Lostwithiel is setting up a Town Tree Arboretum. If you live in town and would like a tree (preferably fruit or nut) for your garden, then join the growing(!) list... at the end of the season Transition Lostwithiel will provide a tree for you and it will become part of the register of town trees forming a corridor for wildlife and helping to prevent flooding.
