An excellent photo of Alan Chadwick, accompanied by a short narrative by a university student at that time describing her encounter with Alan and the garden. She later went on to become a landscape designer, which she attributes to the influence she received from Alan. Recently she went back to UCSC in search of the garden she once knew, but found only a dim remnant of the glory that once was there. Her final sentiment is that the University should do more to honor the person who inspired the organic farming movement in the U.S. Photo used by permission courtesy of Maria von Brincken. Her landscape design website can be found here: http://www.mariavonbrincken.com

 

Two photos of Alan Chadwick taken during his occasional visits to the Saratoga Community Garden, usually in conjunction with a lecture that he was to give in the area. In the first, he is seated, listening to a presentation. In the second, he is seen speaking with some of the garden workers there at Saratoga. Thanks to Betty Peck and Jackie Welch for permission to reproduce these photographs here.
