Our volunteers celebrate at our Both Ombrofyoryon (Volunteer Hub) opening

Volunteers being trained in tool use at Mulfra Vean settlement.

Our Both Ombrofyoryon (Volunteer Hub) at Geevor has provided a hub for our volunteers



Volunteering has been at the heart of the work of the Penwith Landscape Partnership. 

Many of our projects included opportunities for volunteer work. The work our volunteers undertook included:

  • PLP Volunteers at Bosavern Community FarmClearing vegetation from footpaths and ancient sites

  • Surveying archaeological remains in Penwith

  • Repairing Cornish hedges

  • Identifying and recording flora and fauna

  • Repairing and replacing stiles and gates

  • Recording important local heritage features in the landscape

  • Removing invasive species of plants

  • Historical research into ancient sites

Here you can read about the experiences of some of our volunteers.

We have a number of documents of interest to volunteers including our handbook, if you'd like to see this please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Chandelle at 

The lead partner for our two volunteering focused projects was the Cornwall AONB. You can read more about our People and Communities projects here.
