LOST ANGELES Episode 10 features the second part of Host Laura Craven’s conversation with TIM LINDSAY, the superintendent of the VIRGINIA ROBINSON GARDENS, the unique historic estate in Beverly Hills.  Tim talks more about the legacy of Virginia Robinson, her life at the estate, the philanthropic programs she started that continue to benefit the community to this day, and her connections to the cultural and political world of LA through the mid to late 20th Century.  They also talk about more about the flora and fauna of the property and how the Robinson estate became an important destination for botanists, zoologists and historians from all over the world.  As their mission statement says, “The purpose of the Virginia Robinson Gardens is to preserve and promote this historically significant first estate of Beverly Hills for the education and enjoyment of the general public.”  Get a rare glimpse behind the scenes at this fascinating hidden gem of Los Angeles.
