Eden Project The Outdoor Landscape

The south facing slopes of the old clay pit have been transformed into a series of terraces, featuring plants that have changed the world.

The Eden Project's terraces feature plants we can eat, drink, wear and use in our everyday lives. They offer plants that have moved around the world, such as the potato and the tomato, as well as, plants that are used for health. There are tea bushes brought in from India and wheat from all parts of the world.

Cornwall also has a strong presence in this Outdoor Landscape. The plants of Cornwall's Atlantic Woodlands and Cornish Heathland are represented on the curved terraces. Farmland habitats and the Cornish hedge are present, along with examples of the Endangered species that cling to existence in the county, such as the rare English Gentian and the Lichen, Heterodermia isidiosphora, which is now only found in one secret location in the county.

The terraces are punctuated by sculptures, such as Robert Bradford's 'Pollination, a large bee sculpture. Throughout the year as different purposes arise yurts may be set up as educational and information centres with displays about the uses of rubber for example and the fascinating world of plants.
