Lots to see Outside
The 30 acres or so of outdoor gardens are known at the 'Roofless Biome'. Here you can wander around the many paths, which are designed for maximum viewing effect, and are relatively flat (few steps), and broad, making them particularly user-friendly for people with disabilities, as are the indoor Biomes themselves.
Employment for All
It is believed that in the first two years since the opening date, Eden has added an additional £300 million to the Cornish economy.
And due to its unprecedented popularity, the Project employs several hundred full and part time staff, in an area where unemployment is above the National average.
This sculpture is called a Shimenawa, it is worshipped in the oldest Japanese religion of Shinto. This particular one is made of rice straw, you usually find Shimenawa in areas around shrines, scared trees. Also it celebrates the growth of rice. This scupture was made & designed by local artist Phil Booth with the help of Japanese landscape designer Eio Okumura.
