Help Us Grow: a gardening programme for people in recovery

We are running a 9-week programme at Chelsea Physic Garden for people in recovery. The programme teaches the basis of gardening, botany and ethnobotany, as well as how to use plants for medicine, as inspiration for art and in cooking.

If you have any questions about how to join this course or would like more information, please call or email our education team on 0207 349 6474 or

Elkstone Road Garden Oasis: an urban community garden in North Kensington

The Elkstone Road garden, at the foot of Trellick Tower, is an unloved ‘garden’, which has been misused over the years with lots of anti-social behaviour. In collaboration with RBKC community gardening team, this pilot project aims:

  • to provide a beautiful space, which people who live locally can enjoy
  • to grow and teach about food
  • to develop natural wildlife
  • to teach about how to use plants to heal ourselves
  • to develop positive health and well-being

This garden is for the community. Supported by our expertise here at Chelsea Physic Garden, we would love local people to share their knowledge and get involved.

If you would like to get involved, run a workshop at the garden or volunteer your time to this project, please contact
