Eden cherry picks ten foodie gifts that make a difference
Food is at the heart of a visit to the Eden Project, which is situated in Cornwall. How food is grown, made and shared is really important, which is why Eden’s kitchen and food ranges make such special Christmas gifts.
The educational charity’s online shop showcases the very best of food, drink, plants and unique treats – many of which come from Westcountry producers. Each gift is either recycled, organic, sustainable or fairly traded, meaning that they have added value.
