EDEN is a call to action to build a paradise for today: to fertilize, nourish, and protect the pure bliss that the deepest part of us knows and yearns for: the unpolluted perfume of a linden branch; the comforting shade of a towering tree; the breathtaking sanctity of pure love; the generosity of the endless light that breaks open for us every single morning; the dying to the world we have known, only to embrace and live aloud in our heaven, our love, and our song.

How to plant your seed

Information on the seeds you received in the EDEN concert and how to care for them.

Missouri Botanic Garden

More than 150 years ago, Henry Shaw founded this Garden as a place of beauty and floral display, but also as an institution of scientific research and education. The Missouri Botanical Garden has continued in that tradition and, over time, has come to exemplify the nexus of conservation and quality of life.
Today, the Garden is a National Historic Landmark and a treasured part of the St. Louis community. We are also a critical partner in plant conservation throughout the world. Our mission is to discover and share knowledge about plants and their environment in order to preserve and enrich life.
