Eden Project to feature on Blue Peter
The Eden Project is due to feature in an episode of Blue Peter, the CBBC institution and longest-running children’s TV programme in the world.
Presenter Barney Harwood visited Eden’s Rainforest Biome for an insight into the work of the project’s horticultural team. He was hosted by Eden’s Rainforest Biome supervisor Hetty Ninnis, who took him into the treetops to help with some aerial pruning.
Hetty also showed Barney how her team harvest papayas (which involves catching them in a bucket as they fall from the trees) and told him about the chillies that grow in the Biome.
The Eden Project piece is due to air on the CBBC channel at 5pm today (Thursday November 26).
