About Kew Gardens
Our mission is to unlock the potential of plants and fungi, through the power of scientific discovery and research.
We are fighting for a world where plants and fungi are understood, valued and protected.
At the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, we harness the power of our science, and the rich diversity of our gardens and collections to unearth why plants and fungi matter to everyone.
The need has never been greater.
Biodiversity loss, climate change, rapidly-spreading pests and diseases combined with a soaring human population and fragile food security are negatively impacting communities around the world.
Plants and fungi hold the key to solving some of these challenges. Whether as medicines, food, materials or fundamental members of ecosystems, they harbour secrets that could benefit us all.
We employ people like you to conduct cutting-edge research, stimulate curiosity and debate, cultivate our two beautiful gardens and work with the public to encourage a life-long love of plants. We currently employ around 1000 staff and work with around 800 volunteers to achieve our goals
