Dorset Greener Homes

1 - 9 Oct 2022

We are running another Open Greener Homes event in the first two weekends of October 2022. We are opening 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 listings below are for last year's event but we are hoping many of these will open again, and that we get as many new homes to take part. Please ignore the times and dates - these have yet to be decided for this year. If you think you might like to take part, please email [email protected]. The 2021 properties are listed broadly from West to East. The MAP tab below gives you an idea of where they are.
