Edentify Trail family activity
Head on our exciting family Edentify Trail to discover hidden secrets in our Outdoor Gardens.
Discover Eden in a new way with two new story walks created with Cornish writers alongside our community.
Cornwall’s international theatre company, Kneehigh, has included the walks in their free story app, Walk With Me.
The first walk is through the Outdoor Gardens at the Eden Project, with a story or two in each of the indoor Biomes. The stories, poems and illustrations were created by Anna Maria Murphy and Mr Alan Clarke when the Eden Project opened in 2000, and are inspired by the plants on site from around the world.
The second walk takes you on a trail through the Eden Project’s Outer Estate where you’ll discover wildflower meadows, woodlands, sculpture and views of Cornwall’s unique china clay mining landscape. The stories have been gathered and re-imagined by Wyl Menmuir, from local residents participating in the Nature’s Way programme, part of Eden Project Communities. They give a flavour of life in the ‘Clay’ villages both past and present.
There are also new story walks in the town centre of nearby St Austell.
