Dorset Greener Homes

25 Sep - 3 Oct 2021

We are opening fifty homes across Dorset to showcase how we can live with a lower carbon footprint:- some new builds, a few retrofits, and a lot of enthusiasm among the hosts (and visitors we hope). In some cases the low carbon lifestyles are as important as the buildings. The properties are listed broadly from West to East. The MAP tab below gives you an idea of where they are to help plan your itinerary. After you have visited a houses, please could you fill in a feedback form and send it to us. It can be found on . . . . COVID: many of these houses will be viewed from the garden, so bring outdoor clothes if the weather looks poor. Please be prepared to wear a mask if the householder asks you to or if you feel more comfortable with it. Please practice social distancing and disinfect your hands before you enter.
