The Eden Project was built in a giant crater in Cornwall which had reached the end of its previous life as a china clay pit. The Eden team built giant greenhouses – called Biomes - and a global garden here, to show that people can change things for the better! 


These ginormous Biomes create the perfect conditions for some of the world’s coolest natural environments - including the largest rainforest in captivity! - that teach us why plants are so important and why we need to look after them (because they look after us!).
