Then the Lord God planted a garden in the East, in a place named Eden. The Lord God put the man he made in that Garden.
The Lord God put the man in the garden of Eden to work the soil and take care of the garden.
Genesis 2: 8, 15 (easy to read version)
The first Garden, Eden, was planted by God in about 5,096 B.C. E.
