Festive ‘Eden’ in a Hamper


The Eden Project in Cornwall is passionate about plants, people and working towards a sustainable future. To celebrate the season of goodwill, the team at Eden has sourced a number of Christmas hampers and gift sets that showcase the very best of food, drink and plant life – much of which comes from local producers in Cornwall.  All you need to do is buy, try and   enjoy!

There’s also a fairly good chance this kind of question might turn up in a Christmas Cracker a a Trivia fact between the corny joke and the paper crown.

Did you know?  Best known as being Cornwall’s top garden and eco tourist attraction, the Eden Project is also home to the world’s  biggest rainforest  in captivity.

However, if you are like me and dislike being given anything for Christmas unless you can eat it…here are some very tasty suggestions.

Priced from   £15.50, the ethical gift range includes a huge number of different ideas for all the family…

For the lady who loves to   nibble…

Strawberries & Cream Hamper – Eden Cornish   strawberry jam in a reusable kiln jar; tube of Eden strawberries and cream shortbread and a box of organic fudge all supplied in a sustainably sourced hamper. Price  £24.50

Eden Project Olive Gift Set – An ethically   sourced jute gift bag complete with an olive tree supplied by a garden nursery in Cornwall plus a jar of olives created by the Eden team flavoured with garlic, chilli lemon and thyme. Price  £17.50

Eden Chocolate Lovers Gift   Set – An ethically-sourced and reusable robin print jute bag complete with a selection of locally made fairly-traded Christmas chocolates. Price  £17.50

Having just been to interview Nicky Grant who makes these chocolates and tasted what she makes…yummy,!  I’d certainly declare this my favourite gift, and adore the ground walked upon by anyone  kind enough to treat me to it (Hint hint)
