The Eden Project 

by Susan Keefe.


This wonderful place to spend the day, or even two or three, has got to be one of my all-time places to go to in Cornwall at any time of the year. It has something for everyone, plants, incredible statues, works of art, events, exhibitions and plant species from all soil types, and in the famous domes from all around the world. One has to be in awe of a place which can offer so much for young and old, in any season, and flood the brain with masses of information and examples which teach children, and inspire young and old, to make use of natural resources, and really appreciate the world around them.

Set in a disused clay pit, the size of thirty football pitches its incredible bio domes invite the visitor into landscapes they would have to get on a plane to see, and indeed experience, otherwise. Featuring plants from all around the world they really are a sight to see and with plenty of information on hand it is easy to see why they are so popular.

I love the way that young and old can see first-hand the relationships between people and plants, what foods we take for granted look like in their raw form, how they are picked, their medicinal use, and how important their environment is, not only to the plants but for the people whose lives depend on them.

This is a fascinating place to visit at any time of the year and there is also a brilliant shop and café. There is ample parking and it is wheelchair and pushchair accessible, and there are picnic areas.
