Help Us Grow: a gardening programme for people in recovery

We run 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 Learning Team on 0207 349 6474 or

We are grateful to the D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust for awarding us £3000 to support the running of Help Us Grow.

Community Greening Projects

In 2020, we supported the Royal Brompton Hospital to green their courtyard garden, working alongside Brompton Arts and the Brompton Fountain. This has provided a calm and beautiful space for patients and their families to visit and enjoy.

Now, we are working with Chelsea Academy to help green their roof terraces. As a local school with no onsite green space this project will support the wellbeing of students, as well as helping them to learn about the natural world.

We are grateful to the Foyle Foundation, the Goldsmith’s Company Charity, and the Kusuma Trust for supporting these projects.
