It's really is an amazing place, built in an old quarry, there is two bio-domes. One is a Mediterranean dome and one is a rainforest one! I got shots from both so you can see the difference in climate and plant-life there!
The number of visitors on site is huge! And the many people from all over the world visiting that day we were there is just mind-blowing! So many languages all being spoken at once is crazy to take in!
We start with the Mediterranean bio-dome!
Here grows a huge variety of chilli plants. Each row is a different type of chilli, ending with one of the world's hottest Chilli!
such a pretty flower! I was interpreting for the deaf group there and a nice man who works there took us off the public paths to show us up close to some beautiful and rare flowers and we were allowed to get hands on and touch to give an idea and it helped my interpretation easily...sometime sign languages can't capture what touching and smelling does!
It was a great day (a bit rainy too though!) with good friends and I recommend the Eden project as a great place to visit and see first hand all these plants and flowers! You got to see what the raw products of many things we eat and use in our everyday lives, it really puts things into perspective and how much we need the earth and all its nature in order to actually live!
It was great day also for the company I was with, we had a laugh and Abi gave me an asthma attack after scaring me so much! :) (she knocked a mug off the shelve above us which i caught...but forgot to breath afterwards...!) We took many pictures and filmed ourselves doing interviews and general things for Panniko and the deaf youtube stuff which is great as well, as it means we are sharing something to others and encouraging them to come see for themselves!
Happy birthday Panni!
And thank you guys!
