Join Tinx Newton and Katy Parry from Chelsea Physic Garden for an online tour of London’s oldest botanic garden which is also the second oldest botanic garden in England founded just three years after Oxford University’s. The site was acquired and Chelsea Physic Garden founded in 1673 by the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London in order to grow medicinal herbs and train apprentices in their identification and use. Nearly 350 years later it still provides plant material to various institutions for instruction and research. Our talk will bring the garden to life with images and you will discover its fascinating 350-year history and find out more about some of the 5,000 plants housed within the four acres of this unique city sanctuary.
