Meet our two new trustees

We have welcomed two new members to our Board of Trustees this spring, and we're delighted to introduce them to you.

A dedicated and passionate team has been formed to help to transform The Gardeners' House and bring this building back to life. Inspired by the work of Dr Melissa Hardie-Budden at The Hypatia Trust, we want to create a space which is at the heart of our community and celebrated the natural environment of Penwith.

Gill Mulholland and Sue Hill will be joining our current Board- bringing our total number of trustees to eight - and will be sharing a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the project.

Our new Board members

Gill Mulholland

Teacher, outdoor educator, trauma-informed school practitioner and passionate champion of nature-connected learning, Gill joined the Eden Project in 1998 to establish the early education programme for schools and build the  education team.


She now leads Eden’s work with schools to develop nature-connected, outdoor learning and play. Gill is interested in the science of nature connection and the powerful blend of stories and creativity to help children connect, explore and express their relationship with the natural world.


In her spare time, you will often find her gardening or rummaging around in wild places making things out of natural finds

Sue Hill

Theatre-maker, gardener, writer, storyteller, curator, maker of giants/goddesses/creatures out of mud, sticks and plants, Cornishwoman.

Sue has travelled the world, making theatre in unlikely places with Kneehigh and WildWorks, from the Green Line in Nicosia to Kensington Palace, via Soweto and Scilly. With her brother, Pete Hill, she has made many large scale earth sculptures including the Mud Maid and Giant at Heligan and Eve at Eden.


She was Artistic Director of the Eden Project for seven years and she now works on the new Eden Projects that are being developed . She is a Fellow of Falmouth University.


We have registered with the Charity Commission as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). Other local organisations will play an important part in the project, but as a CIO we will be able to take the lead in raising funding, commissioning the necessary renovation work and then managing the building.

We are governed by a Board of Trustees with support from a Project Coordinator and an Administrator.
