AHS Partners with Heygo to bring live garden tours direct to you!

This August, Heygo is going full bloom with interactive live-streaming tours of the world’s best gardens. Even better, they’re guided by the expert gardeners who grew them and will field your questions as you go. From Gaudi’s green oasis in Barcelona, to a hidden bamboo temple in Kamakura, Japan – Heygo is bringing the wonders of the natural world straight to your screen with the Botanical Gardens Festival. All August on Heygo.com.

Join AHS RAP Gardens Toronto Botanical Garden and Gamble Garden in Palo Alto, CA for tours of their stunning grounds.

At Toronto Botanical Garden, Dianne—a pharmacist by training and a volunteer with the Toronto Master Gardeners—will walk you through their fascinating history starting with the ice age, through to the early settlers of Toronto and now with the creation of award-winning gardens. Tour will be held August 12 at 10:00 AM EST and August 13 at 8:00 AM EST.

Over at Gamble Garden, take in their magnificent collection of heritage apple trees and have all your burning apple questions answered by their in house experts. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a sneak peek into Elizabeth Gamble’s historic home all decked out in apple-themed decor. Tour will be on August 14, at 8:30 AM PST.
