Volunteer Opportunities

Pentiddy loves to host people and offer them a unique experience to learn about all aspects of simple living and the day to day work of a diverse permaculture smallholding. See below for what’s on offer:

Short-Term Stays

Pentiddy is part of the WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) and Help-x where people can exchange their volunteer help for food and accommodation. The accommodation offered depends on our total number of volunteers, but can be a cabin or yurt- both with wood burning stoves, or a tent.

Volunteer Tasks

Your role as a volunteer will mainly be on the building project unless you specifically wish to focus more on the food production and land management aspects. We hope everyone will get involved in the day-to-day duties, such as watering the garden, feeding the sheep and hens and preparing food and washing up.

Want to volunteer?

It is best to contact us regarding volunteering well in advance of your proposed stay. You will need to join either WWOOF or Help-X.

The people who volunteer here provide us with the welcome extra hands needed for much of the day-to-day running of the place.

We treat our volunteers much like extra members of the family, and they work, eat and socialise with us. Most only come for a week or two, but some for much longer (this is something we work out on an individual basis after a trial period).

We do have a guideline information sheet which you should read before offering to volunteer here.
