The Eden Restoration Project is a simple concept: Grow More Food.
Through our programs we are challenging the current food distribution model.
We install community free access food gardens. We teach how to easily grow food with little resources.
We are teaching how to harvest seeds and be creative in growing food.
We have established an online Farmer’s Market that opens access to anyone that would rather buy
local healthy produce from their local farms than food that is void of taste and nutrition and travels thousands of miles.
Our current industrial food system is detrimental to the planet. We can do better.
There are people hungry, while millions of pounds of food get thrown away. We can do better.
We dump tons of chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers all over our Earth. We can do better.
We decimate rivers and lakes to irrigate for cattle and crops. We can do better.
The ERP is that attempt…To do better.
So come join us. Help us do better. Learn how to do better. Teach us how to do better.
