The Eden Project is a registered 501 c 3 whose mission is “to provide world class, community-based, reintegration programs for the warrior and his or her support group.”

Our Focus is on Reintegration

With little or no clear definition of reintegration for our service members, we define it as The process of regaining one’s role of self, family member, employee and community member. We achieve this by being mindful of enriched experiences and learning to incorporate them into these roles.

Did you know 26 of the 44 Presidents have served in the military? The last President with military service was President George W. Bush, while his father, President George H. W. Bush, served in the Navy from 1942 to 1945.

This year our couples’ classes will take on a “date night” theme. Along with playing Warrior Spirit couples edition, we will have cooking classes, art classes, craft classes and some exciting “surprise” classes. Each “date night” will have no more than 5 couples. If you are interested in having fun while learning to communicate, be intimate and build a strong marriage, contact us to reserve your spot. 

There are only a few spots left!

Join us for an exciting day at the races. It’s the Rinnai 250 and Atlanta 200 Double header, plus the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 February 22nd through the 24th at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. You get to volunteer to support The Eden Project AND get tickets for the races! But you have to hurry, we need all names in by noon Tuesday Feb 19th. Email admin@eden-project.com to sign up. Put AMS in the subject line. There are a few spots available Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

Have you heard? The Eden Project, 92.5 The Bear, and Ideal Therapy have teamed up to present “Warrior Wednesday!” Tune in at 8 am every other Wednesday morning to hear current events and programs offered to veterans, first responders and their families. Topics will include financial planning, health and wellness, activities for veterans and lots of volunteer opportunities.

It has been a rough week for The Eden Project family.
Just this week alone, two (friends/volunteers) have entered the hospital, and two others have died.  One was self-inflicted. We will respect their privacy and continue to pray for healing and comfort for these families.
More than 327,000 veterans live with a brain injury and other hidden wounds.  It’s another reason why The Eden Project exists.
