Chelsea Physic Garden has designed family activity packs for children to encourage a connection with the natural world. These packs offer a range of DIY activities such as scavenger hunts, flower pressing, terrarium creation, and candle making.

We work with further education institutions across a variety of academic disciplines. You can either bring your students for a visit or work with us on a specific project. Find out more here.

We offer occasional Career Professional Development (CPD) evening for teachers to come together and get inspired to teach students about plant science and natural conservation.
