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. Our mission is to find those treasures and bring them to people who really need them.
“We are working on a new project called Food Web. The Food Web is a holistic approach towards small scale food production. Basically, it’s a way to
increase efficiency and yields by integrating livestock. If you are going to raise animals on your homestead, you should design connections and
interactions between them to decrease feed inputs and labor.
We’re building a Food Web here in Northern Mexico as a working example and sort of an open classroom for the struggling farmers in our area. We are
documenting this project in a book, titled Food Web. It will provide instructions for people to be able to design and create their own Food Webs,
depending on their unique situations and circumstances.
