The Physic Garden relies on your support

Chelsea Physic Garden is a charity, dedicated to demonstrating the medicinal, economic, cultural and environmental importance of plants to the survival and well-being of humankind. As an independent charitable body with no government funding, the Garden relies on the time and generosity of Friends and volunteers to help protect and nurture this historic garden for future generations.

How can I help?

Join the Friends 
Friends play a vital part in the preservation of Chelsea Physic Garden. We rely on the generosity of Friends to nurture the Garden and to support our educational work with schools and budding gardeners. From as little as £33, join the Friends and enjoy access to this special place throughout the year, while aiding our work.

Become a volunteer
Staff at the Garden are few in number and depend on a team of volunteers who provide invaluable help and services and make a crucial difference to our work. Much of the voluntary work is seasonal as the Garden is fully open from spring to the end of October. However there are special projects where help is required throughout the year.
