Transition Lostwithiel


LostwithielClimate 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.

Tree register  - We wanted to build on our community orchard but couldn't find any publicly accessible land where we could get permission to plant trees. So we've come up with a Plan B: donate productive trees to people who live in Lostwithiel and keep a Tree Register. It means we have a more productive trees in the area and people can bring any surplus produce to the Plant Swap
