About Us

Penwith Environmental Network (PEN) is a registered charity (no. 295087) with the objective “to promote the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment, and to educate and inform the public and others in all related matters.”

PEN has had many differing faces over the years, set up in 1984; it became a charity in 1987. Originally it was known as Penwith Green Centre and for many years it ran an open centre for the public to access information about environmental issues in Penwith. The charity has gradually evolved into a network promoting environmental issues in a local context. Increasing environmental awareness through education and networking with other groups in Penwith, and further a field, is the intention of PEN.

The current focus of  PEN’s work is centred on the Edible Forest, wildlife garden and community garden at Love Lane and managing Millennium Woods. volunteer opportunities exist for those who can self manage.
