The National Lottery

Thanks to the generous support of our core programme funder, The National Lottery, Eden Project Communities has gone from strength-strength since 2009.

We are immensely proud of what we’ve already achieved with great celebratory events such as The Big Lunch and our nationwide outreach development work.

Through our ongoing partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund, the hard work of our team at Eden and the money raised by National Lottery players, we’re on a mission to help the UK connect with their communities.

The Eden Project is an educational charity and social enterprise. We create gardens, exhibitions, art, events, experiences and projects that explore how people can work together – and with nature – towards a better future. We are inspired by the belief that people are more than capable of changing things for the better, and through creating Eden we’ve learnt what ingenuity, resourcefulness, hope and determination can do.

The Eden Project story is one of transformation and hope, so in 2009 we decided to try a little experiment: to see what the transformative effect of getting to know our neighbours might be. That little experiment was The Big Lunch.

Through Eden Project Communities we support ordinary people to do extraordinary things as they build their skills and confidence to create positive change where they live.
