15 year old Eden Birdseye is the descendant of the inventor who invented the freezing process for food, and she is also born into a family of farmers with farms scattered along the California coastline.  Fresh out of boarding school and newly-enrolled in her local high school, Eden thought she would have a normal existence as a teenager, instead of the heir to a farming empire.  What she doesn't know is her knowledge of food, science, technology, and even math will come into play when a world crisis surfaces.  Suddenly, Eden who just wanted to hide, is now The Garden Girl, and she learns that despite being a girl and only 15, she can do a lot to help change the world for the better.
