Dorset Climate Action Network

Dorset CAN (Dorset Climate Action Network) is a network of community groups and individuals working together for a shared vision of a clean, green, sustainable Dorset.

These are our partners in the St Mary’s school allottment, polytunnel and food project, and cookery classes. The intention of the HOME in BRIDPORT PROJECT is to help create local employment while celebrating local life in a beautiful rural land and seascape. Its beginning point is always within building trust and friendship through cultural work.

Bridport Food Matters is a collaborative enterprise involving several existing community food stakeholders. BFM aims to build resilience, mutual aid and a supportive and sharing economy, primarily through the promotion of food equality and cooperation, for the benefit of the people and families of Bridport and its surrounding area.

Bridport Community Shed is made up of a group of people who come together to share skills and experiences and make and mend . Repairs, scrapstore, projects, textiles, learning new skills, and a warm welcome to all.
A way of living that’s more green, less costly and neighbourly – in Bridport.

The orchard is freely available for everyone to enjoy informally, and also for public events organised either by the orchard group, or other local groups, on application to BCOG. BCOG is made up entirely of volunteers. New volunteers are always welcome (there’s no membership fee)

We’re working to make the Bridport bioregion a home to thriving people, in a thriving place, whilst respecting the wellbeing of all people, and the health of the whole planet.  We’re just getting started. Our plan is to incorporate as a Community Benefit Society as soon as we get 20 local people contributing £5+/mo
