Alan Chadwick (July 27, 1909 – May 25, 1980), English master gardener, was a leading innovator of organic farming techniques[1][2] and influential educator in the field of biodynamic/French intensive gardening. He was a student of Rudolf Steiner[3][4] and is often cited[5] as inspirational to the development of the "California Cuisine" movement. The Chadwick restaurant in Beverly Hills was named after him.[6] His grave is marked by a stupa at the Green Gulch Farm Zen Center in California. Chadwick is the subject of a 2013 retrospective by a former University of California, Santa Cruz professor, Paul Lee, called There Is a Garden in the Mind: A Memoir of Alan Chadwick and the Organic Movement in California.[7] There is a memorial page at that includes the 1971 16-mm film "Garden".
