The Eden Project: Gardening at Eden and How to Do It At Home

Give Generously: These are gifts that benefit great causes. It's the best of both worlds: shop and do good.
 
The Eden Project is the world's largest green house built inside domes located in mid-Cornwall, England. I recently heard about this when I was watching a show on the Water Cube - the aquatic center for the Beijing Olympics which is built with the same structure of interconnected hexagons.
 
The various domes create climates zones that house a variety of plants from the tropical to dry zones resulting with crops like coffee, bananas, rubber, giant bamboo, olives, lavender and more. The location hosts exhibits, workshops and educational programmes for people to explore the joys of nature and the brilliance of biodiversity.
