Eden Project - Inspiring transformation, connection and commonality

 

The Eden Project connects us with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work towards a better future. Donations help to preserve its remarkable infrastructure and educational mission for future generations, and deliver transformational projects which can help change people’s lives for the better.

In 2001 something incredible opened in Cornwall. Now world-famous, the Eden Project attracts a million visitors a year This is education on an epic scale - the vision of people like Sir Tim Smit realized through the most dramatic, technically advanced architecture and beautiful landscape; mankind immersed in nature. If you haven’t been you really should. 

As fans of Eden, it struck us here at Pukka that we should find ways to partner together. So last year we took a trip to have a chat with these amazing plant pioneers. As we walked around the site, we were stunned to find the signposts at Eden structured around people, plants and planet – exactly the same as the Pukka Planet section of our site. The synergy between the two organisations seemed uncanny.

So together we sat down and hatched a plan. To find a way to bring the beauty of plants and herbs to as many people as possible. As part of this, work started in earnest to build a series of new installations at Eden – all about the wonders of herbs. In May the first of these opened – a giant Pukka tea box that takes visitors on a journey of discovery.

Situated around and under the main bridge leading into the Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes, the Pukka Tea Box welcomes people coming out from the main restaurants with a whole new sensory experience. From scratch and sniff detox wallpaper, to drawers of herbs. From a bed planted with over 100 species of herbs to our own Eden story tellers who offer samples of our many different blends and help explain the wonders and magic of organic herbs.

There's also an exhibit of spices within the Rainforest Biome too and a herb trail throughout the site – challenging you to find 12 key herbs planted all across Eden.

The new exhibit is an immersive experience - from standing inside a giant box of Pukka tea to playing interactive games amongst giant tea cups and saucers. We hope this magical addition to Eden will help to spread the wonder and wellbeing of herbs to a bigger audience than ever before.
