We are inviting ordinary people with no special skills and bags of enthusiasm to live happier lives, improve the town and have fun in the process.

You may have heard of Transition Dorking, but you may also have absolutely no idea of who we are or what we do, but can you do any of this…

  • Help grow local food either for yourself or for the wider community?
  • Help sell local produce via our high street stall Food Float?

Or can you do this …

  • Save energy yourself or do your bit to help others save energy?
  • Play your own small part in starting a project to generate local energy?

Or maybe you could have a go at this …

  • Be part of a team organising a one-off event such as a pop up restaurant?
  • Harvest apples at the community orchard?

Perhaps you are thinking ” I already recycle, buy local food & have double glazing. What else do you want from me?” 

Keep doing that stuff. A key principle of Transition Dorking is meeting future challenges does not mean living a life of bleak austerity. We like to say “it’s more like a party than a protest march”. We need your ideas and your time and energy to do all sorts of things.
