Tour of Virginia Robinson Gardens-SOLD OUT

March 16 @ 8:45 a.m. 5:00 p.m.

See the largest stand of King Palms outside of Australia and the oldest Coral Tree in the state on a tour of the Virginia Robinson Gardens.

Virginia Robinson (1877–1977) of Beverly Hills and Madame Ganna Walska (1887–1984) of Montecito were enemies of the average; challenging women’s traditional roles and living courageously. Each had a love of beauty, music, self-expression, and a life-long ambition to express themselves through the gardens they created. Madame Ganna Walska created her boldly dramatic garden over a forty-three-year period while Virginia Robinson designed and honed her classical style Garden Villa over a period of sixty-six years. Each garden exudes the dramatic personalities of its creators. Both gardens have been meticulously preserved and rank among the finest in the world!

After a fascinatingly docent-led tour of the historic property, enjoy a beautifully catered lunch on the terrace before we depart.

As we make our way back to Santa Barbara, we will stop at a nearby private home and garden for an exclusive look at their Scott Shrader designed garden.

$225 – $275
