The Eden Project is housed within a disused china clay pit at Bodelva near St. Aust= ell. The structure itself has been accurately described as the biggest greenhous= e on the planet and must certainly be the most unique - comprising a remarkable = pair of conservatories or 'biomes' ; each of which is= built from hundreds of ultra-lightweight hexagonal panels. Nearly 5000 species of plants are to be found within, from all corners of the Earth and ranging in size from the smallest phytoplankton to the huge tropical rainforest trees = in the Humid Tropics Biome. The Eden Project is all about plants but moreover about sustainability.  It is a= t the same time a celebration of global biodiversity and an exploration of human = interaction and interdependency. If it seeks to educate then it is to promote an awaren= ess of the fragile relationship between plants, people and resources. The Eden experience is unforgettable and the response it provokes is typically one of awe; not jus= t of the scale and magnitude of the operation but of the breathtaking beauty wit= hin coupled with an enriched perception of the world we all share and depend on= for our future well-being.
