The Victory Garden

Episode #2505

The notion of Hollywood in its heyday evokes images of glamour that Virginia Robinson, first lady of Beverly Hills, was able to recreate in her own private garden, begun in 1906. Now open for guided walking tours, The Virginia Robinson Garden evokes the glamour of this bygone era with its elegant, winding woodland pathways that connect the formal mall to the striking palm garden and finally, to the luxurious rose garden. West Coast correspondent Bob Smaus interviews superintendent Timothy Lindsay to learn how these gracious gardens came to be bequeathed to the City of Los Angeles in 1977. And finally, Chef Marian Morash teams up again with the Rancho La Puerta spa's Executive Chef Bill Wavrin to create another healthful dish with fresh organic produce. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
