Until the 15th February with 365 Tickets!
Only ten years ago there was nothing to see other than a worked out China Clay pit with no prospect of growing anything other than wild scrub.
Not surprisingly the most exciting new garden on the planet has attracted some of the best gardeners – a uniquely skilled team that brings together expertise from professional backgrounds ranging from botanic gardens and public landscapes to conservation and even farming.
Eden’s Gardening Team have turned this mining landscape, offering huge challenges, into a vibrant global garden that has caught the imagination of gardeners the world over. There are over 100,000 plants that have turned a desolate scar on the landscape into the dramatic, award winning and often amusing style of that sets Eden apart.
Events at Eden Project
Pollinators at Eden
Our Pollinators act, sing, dance, tell stories and demonstrate crafts, scientific knowledge and cultural uses of plants – all in the name of explaining Eden’s exhibits to visitors.
Our Pollinators don’t pollinate Eden’s plants, they ‘pollinate’ people with inspiring stories and conversations! With their diverse passions, they open doorways into the magic and mystery of the natural world. From solar-powered sound systems to growing plants in shoes, the Pollinators make sure there is something for everyone, whether you’re 3 or 93!
Storytelling at Eden
Eden is one of the few places in the world that stages live storytelling every day, so you will be able to hear a tall tale whenever you visit! Eden aspires to be a place where the stories of our futures are created and told: the Aesop’s Fables of the 21st century.
Storytelling sessions happen every day at 12pm and 2pm, normally in the Citrus Grove in the Mediterranean Biome but check the noticeboards around the site for the exact location.
Where to find the Pollinators
Our Pollinators roam around the site every day that Eden is open (although not every Pollinator is here every day – they need a rest sometimes!). Come and explore the Biomes and find a Pollinator: you never know what you might discover next!
