Philosophy and Ethos
Petersham Nurseries is fundamentally connected to nature. It is at the essence of the business, from our horticultural roots, to the seasonality of our food. We encourage positive living through consideration of the environment and draw inspiration from its beauty.
Petersham Nurseries is proudly local, homegrown and part of the surrounding community. We care about our staff, who have become an extended family, whilst maintaining strong relationships with neighbours and treating customers the way we would treat guests in our own home. We support various charities and initiatives, both locally and abroad.
This is demonstrated in many aspects of our daily routine from the family owned and run organic farm, the Slow Food and Flower ethos upon which our menus are based and plants are grown, to reducing waste and encouraging recycling within the business. We aim to have a minimal impact on the environment. Supporting organisations such as the Marine Conservation Society and Farms Not Factories, our sourcing ethos inspires the buyers and chefs who are respectful of the produce they work with and appreciate its exceptional quality.
The Petersham Nurseries team enjoy sharing our knowledge and wisdom. Nurturing our staff and inviting them into the Petersham family. Nourishing relationships with customers and suppliers alike. We endeavour to keep learning, regularly sharing our wealth of experience through the School of Garden Inspiration and culinary workshops.
Stepping into the world of Petersham Nurseries is to experience something unique. A destination like no other which stretches boundaries in what is created, sourced and served. Exciting senses and provoking thought; a place of aspiration and inspiration.
