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


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.
