- The Santa Cruz garden that launched a movement
By Maria Gaura - Thursday Apr 13, 2017
The Alan Chadwick Garden at UC Santa Cruz received a splendid gift for its 50th birthday this year — more than 5 feet of seasonal rainfall, courtesy of Mother Nature. The result has been an epic spring bloom, just as the university kicks off a yearlong celebration of the historic garden, the Agroecology training program it inspired, and the worldwide organic movement it helped to birth. Creating a pioneering training program in organic agriculture was not part of the university’s plan when Chancellor Dean McHenry approved a garden project in 1967. Faculty proposed building a UCSC Student Garden, a place that would bring students together for healthful social activity. “Dean McHenry was a farm boy himself, and he loved the idea of a garden,” said Paul Lee, a professor of philosophy at the time, and one of the garden’s earliest advocates. A former Shakespearean actor, Chadwick was a lanky, sun-leathered figure crowned with a towering blond pompadour. From its beginning the 3-acre garden was a radical rebuke to the Green Revolution, rejecting not only pesticides and herbicides, but the entire worldview that reduced nature to a tool of progress. Chadwick introduced students — and North America — to the French Intensive method, a rigorous revival of traditional European kitchen gardening. The French Intensive method enriched the soil with compost and cover crops, fluffed the earth with double digging, and encouraged a mad diversity of crops, pollinators and beneficial insects. Everything was meticulously hand-dug, planted and weeded, and woe betide the careless student who compressed the soil by stepping into a raised planting bed. Chadwick taught by example, demonstrating how to spread compost, transplant seedlings, prune a tree — then allowing students to follow suit. In 1971, at Chadwick’s request, the university allowed the garden program to expand to the Farm, a separate 30-acre plot across campus. Chadwick left UCSC in 1972, moving on to found other influential organic gardens, most famously the Green Gulch Farm at the Zen Center in Marin County, where he is now buried. More than 1,500 apprentices from the Chadwick Garden, UCSC’s Farm and Agroecology programs have since fanned out across the globe, working to bend the trajectory of the world’s food systems toward sustainability. To this day, visitors can spy inspirational poetry hand-lettered on whitewashed stakes, including a poem by Gary Snyder: Just past UC Santa Cruz’s main entrance at Bay and High Streets is a kiosk where you can buy a parking permit (no permit required on weekends or after 5 p.m.). Walk on the gravel road that parallels the paved bike path, enter farm at the wooden entrance gate. Do not walk on the paved path, which carries high-speed downhill bike traffic. Learn about the education, research and outreach work taking place through the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems. In recognition of the garden’s 50th anniversary, Outstanding in the Field will hold an amazing alfresco dinner at the UCSC Farm’s Ocean View field, overlooking Monterey Bay. First 50 Celebration: Three days of events combining speakers, workshops, tours, and music, with local food and mingling with stalwarts of the sustainable agriculture community.
