Books Info:

Eden free pdf '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...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. Since Eden opened in 2001, well over ten million visitors have made their way to Eden, drawn by the astonishing, visionary ambition of its founders, the everchanging horticulture and new developments on-site. More have discovered it as an extraordinary music venue, attending Eden's sessions. But Eden is far more than a visitor attraction. It has mutated into an organisation with projects and partnerships all over the world concerned with rehabilitation (physical and social), community education, biodiversity, sustainable construction, green employment and town planning. Marking the 10th anniversary, this edition is the extraordinary, fully updated story of Eden complete with stunning new photographs.

He moved to Cornwall in 1987, where together with John Nelson he 'discovered' and then restored the Lost Gardens of Heligan. He remains a director of the gardens to the present day. Tim Smit is chief executive and co-founder of the award-winning Eden Project near St Austell in Cornwall. He is also a trustee, patron and board member of a number of statutory and voluntary bodies both locally and nationally, and has received a variety of national awards, including the Royal Society of Arts Albert Medal, an honorary CBE in 2002, an honorary KBE in 2011, and honorary doctorates and fellowships from a number of universities.
