cpd25 is pleased to announce the second of a series of four visits in 2007 with the theme of Natural History.
The Chelsea Physic Garden was founded in 1673, as the Apothecaries’ Garden, with the purpose of training apprentices in identifying plants. It is the second oldest botanic garden in Britain. Botanic gardens are institutions holding documented collections of living plants for the purposes of scientific research, conservation, display and education. 300 years after its founding, the Garden continues to research the properties, origins and conservation of over 5000 species. The collection concentrates on medicinal plants and those of ethnobotanical interest, as well as rare and endangered species.
Please note that there is a charge of £10 per head to cover the costs of this visit. Booking is only available to cpd25 member institutions.
To enable as wide a range of people to attend, places are strictly limited to one person per institution.
