Photo Essay: The Eden Project, Cornwall

We were lucky enough to visit The Eden Project when we were in Cornwall this week and were amazed by the innovation that had been created in the space. Built in an old clay quarry, The Eden’s Project’s aim is to teach people about renewable energy. It’s like a Disney World for nature lovers.

*Stay tuned for our video!*
