About

Grow Wild is the national outreach initiative of the Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew). The programme takes Kew’s message outside the walls of our two botanic gardens, reaching new and different audiences. We’re supported by the Big Lottery Fund through National Lottery Funds, and through private and public contributions.

Through Grow Wild, Kew is inspiring millions of people to grow as a group, get active, learn about and engage with nature, and give back through volunteering. All of which can improve health and well-being, as well as urban and unloved spaces across the UK.

Grow Wild transforms spaces and changes lives through UK native plants and fungi.

We believe that simple acts of creativity can turn spaces into beautiful, inspiring and colourful wildlife havens; encouraging people to care for and delight in the nature around them.
