Summary
Interview with Sir Tim Smit, the highly innovative and successful businessman who restored ruined and discarded landscapes to create two of the most popular, and arguably most imaginative, botanical gardens in the world. His most notable enterprise""The Eden Project""took a devastated china clay quarry in rural Cornwall, England and transformed it over a 15 year-period, and costing 144 million pounds sterling, into one of the wonders of the world. The enormous educational theme park is dedicated to exploring the complete dependence of human beings on plants. Its two biomes""one housing the world's largest indoor rainforest and the other featuring Mediterranean flora such as olives and grapes""contain thousands of plant species, many of them medicinal. In this Green Interview, Smit discusses The Eden Project, how it operates and how it can be a model "for how people can live with the grain of nature."
