Grow Wild and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

Grow Wild is the national outreach initiative of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew: encouraging millions of people to transform spaces and change lives through native UK plants and fungi.

Kew’s mission is to ‘to be the global resource for plant knowledge, building an understanding of the world’s plants upon which all our lives depend’. Over the past 250 years, Kew has made innumerable contributions to increasing the understanding of plants and fungus with many benefits for humankind.

Kew’s Grow Wild team works closely with colleagues across the organisation, especially at Kew’s UK Native Seed Hub, who draw on the expertise from Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank to support the UK seed industry and other organisations working to restore native plants to the UK countryside.
