The Eden Foundation is a pioneering not-for-profit social enterprise whose purpose is to catalyse human potential, promote social and sustainable innovation, and create real transformative change. We help people to find and live their passion. And to create new and sustainable ways of living for themselves, their families, businesses and communities. Futures with purpose.

Eden's Philosophy:

There are 250,000 known plant species in the world, but only 20 of them provide 90% of our food. We believe that the key to prosperity for the poor lie in underexploited, edible trees and bushes - the lost treasures of Eden.
