TRAVEL with Us & See the Gardens of the World

CHS opens the door to the gardens of the world through our travel programs. From day-trips to Boston to weeks in Bangkok, CHS members are offered a variety of specially priced group trips that focus on a horticultural theme but always manage to include other areas of interest as well. Travel is arranged by Friendship Tours of Bloomfield, Conn., whose programs for CHS are designed with our members in mind. It would be hard to find such an array of exciting adventures anywhere else. Plus, special prices and packages are publicized to CHS members only.
