At Kew, we are committed to increasing ten-fold the number of visitors from presently under-represented communities to the Gardens.

Our Community Learning Programme is open to people who might otherwise face physical, sensory, psychological or social barriers to visiting Kew.

Meet the Knitting Nature group, who come together at Kew to learn about Kew's science and rare plants through a fun and friendly knit and natter workshop.
