The Eden Project

There is a successful, comparable project to Earthpark; it is called Eden Project in Cornwall, England. In October 1998 the Eden team turned the first dirt in a sterile, empty moonscape of a china clay quarry that became the Eden Project opening in 2000. Check out their remarkable story about taking on the challenge of building one of the most ambitious green projects in the world and the success it is today.
