Eden

Eden

By: Tim Smit (author)eBook

Description

'With passion and commitment thousands of "small" people built Eden as a symbol of hope in action...

We may all have feet of clay, but that shouldn't stop us trying to make a difference. Wouldn't we all rather look back and say, "I'm glad I did," rather than "I wish I had"? Some might smile at the naivety of such ambition, believing it to be impossible. We say, "Demand the impossible".'

So said Tim Smit and thus was the impossible delivered: a living theatre of plants and people and their interdependence, housed in a disused china clay pit and featuring the world's largest greenhouses. Well over five million visitors have since made their way to Eden, drawn by the astonishing, visionary ambition of its founders. This is Tim's story of how it all came about: the Project's genesis in the Lost Gardens of Heligan, its design and construction against all the odds, its supremely talented team of larger-than-life personalities. Above all, how the energy that brought the vision to life is being applied to possible futures. It is a vision for all to share.
