The lost gardens of Heligan by Tim Smit( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and Dutch and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until WW1, the estate gardens at Heligan were one of the glories of Cornwall, a botanist's paradise to rival Kew. After the war, the gardens were abandoned and remained neglected for 70 years, until Smit fell under their spell and restored them
Eden by Tim Smit( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the impossible was delivered. From the sterile depths of a disused china clay pit in Cornwall rose one of the most remarkable and ambitious ventures in recent memory. The Eden Project's Biomes, the world's largest conservatories, are the symbol of a living theatre of plants and people and their interdependence, of regeneration and of a pioneering forum for the exploration of possible futures. Since Eden opened its doors to the world in March 2001, more than 18 million visitors have flocked there and Tim Smit has received a knighthood for delivering his astonishing vision. This is the extraordinary story of the Eden Project, of its conception, design and construction, of the larger-than-life personalities who made it happen. It is the story of how the hope and energy of many men and women transformed a thrilling idea into the breath-taking reality of one of the world's great gardens. But Eden is more: it is and has always been an educational charity - its mission to connect us with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work towards a better future. Eden has projects and partnerships all over the world concerned with rehabilitation, (physical and social), community, eduation, biodiversity, town planning, sustainabe construction, green employment .. and much more" --Publisher's description

Heligan wild : a year of nature in the lost gardens by Colin Howlett( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lost Gardens of Heligan was a phenomenal No.1 bestseller and winner of the BCA Illustrated Book of the Year Award. This extraordinary tale of gardening, archaeology and passion created a vast readership hungry for more news from what The Times called 'the garden restoration of the century'. Colin Howlett observed the wildlife and the weather throughout an entire year at Heligan Gardens, and this book is the result - a nature lover's diary, full of fascinating observations and enchanting detail. The magic of Heligan has captured the imagination of gardeners and non gardeners alike, and this in depth journal will provide inspiration for all who have visited or those who have been captivated by the award winning documentary on Channel 4
Heligan : the complete works ; secrets locked in silence by Tim Smit( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Until World War I the estate gardens at Heligan were one of the glories of Cornwall, but they were then neglected for many years before being rediscovered and restored. Linked to a Channel 4 television series, this is a photographic record of how the workforce of Heligan, past and present, have created the splendour of the gardens today. From Victorian images that show how they once were, to recent pictures of an ice-sculpture exhibition featuring ghosts of gardeners past, the book spans the whole of Heligan's existence." --Publisher description
The myth gap : what happens when evidence and arguments aren't enough? by Alex Evans( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Once upon a time our society was rich in stories. They united us and helped us to understand the world and ourselves. We called them myths. Today, we have a myth gap. Does that matter? Alex Evans argues powerfully and persuasively that it does. In this time of global crisis and transition - mass migration, inequality, resource scarcity, and climate change - it is only by finding new myths, those that speak to us of renewal and restoration, that we will navigate our way to a better future. It is stories, rather than facts and pie-charts, that have the power to animate us and bring us together in to change the world. Drawing on his first-hand experience as a political adviser within British government and at the United Nations, and examining the history of climate change campaigning and recent contests such as Brexit and the US presidential election, Alex Evans explores: how tomorrow's activists are using narratives for change, how modern stories have been used and abused, where we might find the right myths that will take us from a dark age of uncertainty towards the broad, sunlit uplands that we all seek."--Publisher's description
