Service Activities:

Chelsea Physic Garden holds a collection of around 5,000 plants. The Growing Friends produce plants for sale by propagating and growing on a selection of these plants so that visitors are able to take home the perfect memento of their visit. These purchases help to support the work we do in the Garden.
The Growing Friends are a very productive, hardworking and, of course, friendly team! The ideal candidates will:
have a keen interest in plants
be able to attend regularly on Thursdays, from 10am to 4pm
be happy to work outside in a variety of weather conditions
be able to join a watering rota in the summer
If you would like to volunteer in London’s oldest botanic garden, an oasis in the middle of Chelsea, please let us know. We do not expect you to be an expert gardener or propagator as training will be given.
