Located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit, the eden project represents three biomes, or ecosystems. The Tropical Biome, covers 1.56 hectares (3.9 acres) and holds tropical plants, such as fruiting banana trees, coffee, rubber and giant bamboo, and is kept at a tropical temperature and moisture level. The Mediterranean Biome covers 0.654 hectares (1.6 acres) and houses familiar warm temperate and arid plants such as olives and grape vines and various sculptures. The Outdoor Biome (which is not covered) represents the temperate regions of the world with plants such as tea, lavender, hops, hemp and sunflowers.
Visitors can explore all three biomes, and see how we rely on plants that create food, fuel, materials and medicines. There is lots to see inside the project including sculptures, like the giant bee and towering robot created from old electrical appliances.
