We respect the natural world and demonstrate that people are part of ‒ not apart from ‒ nature
We protect wild places and enable them to thrive
We repair damaged spaces that need to be fixed
Eden co-founder Sir Tim Smit on our mission
“ In the beginning the idea was very simple – let’s take a place of utter dereliction and create life in it ”
Twenty years ago, Eden Cornwall was a sterile clay pit; today it is a living landscape full of life. See where we've come from, how we've grown, and where we're going next.
