Greener Belstone is an apolitical village initiative focused on promoting sustainability and tackling climate change, alongside protecting and increasing our local biodiversity.

Greener Belstone will do this by:

  • Providing a hub of useful sustainability information and ideas
  • Organising community initiatives and events for Belstone
  • Working with other local groups on green issues 

The Greener Belstone organising group welcomes any villagers interested in working together towards these goals. Contact us at GreenerBelstone@gmail.com

Our group currently consists of:
Theresa Weaver
Rona Gundry
Chris Townshend
Hugh Langworthy
Ella Curnow
We are not linked to the Parish Council or Village Hall but hope to work with them on environmental projects.

Forthcoming events and initiatives that we are working on:

  • Guided walking tour of gardens in Belstone with advice on how to use areas to increase biodiversity
  • Advice on using farmland and garden hedges as sanctuaries and corridors for wildlife
  • Sustainability event with stalls and talks from local businesses and experts
  • Creating a village orchard
  • Talk on the Dartmoor peatlands
