Recreating Eden is a Canadian lifestyle and gardening television documentary program. Its aim is to examine the physical, mental, and spiritual healing effects that gardens have on their keepers

History[edit]

Recreating Eden was originally broadcast on HGTV Canada in 2002, but after two seasons was not renewed.[1] It was then picked up by VisionTV for an additional three seasons.[2] As of 2010, the series has not been renewed for a sixth season.

Community Garden Initiative[edit]

VisionTV and Recreating Eden teamed up in 2007 to create the Community Garden Initiative, a project to fund green communities in cities and towns across Canada. The program ran successfully for two years, funding six projects.
