Product description

Review

"[There is a Garden in the Mind] is part philosophy, part personal meditation, and part tribute to a man who was a transformational figure in the organic movement that began from small seeds in California and has now reached a global community."
--Publishers Weekly

"As a gardener, teacher, aesthete, and philosopher, Alan Chadwick was critically important to our understanding of organic and biodynamic farming in this country. No one can tell his story better than Paul Lee, who captures his spirit, and the birth of the California organic movement, with warmth, eloquence, and urgency."
--Alice Waters, chef, restaurateur, owner of Chez Panisse, and founder of the Edible Schoolyard Project

"There Is a Garden in the Mind is a masterpiece--a garden of rich soils, flowering plants, changing seasons. This is a powerful, compassionate story of Alan Chadwick's and Paul Lee's struggle to restore the integrity of organic nature into the hearts, minds, and hands of a culture that has forgotten that Garden Earth is the only home we have."
--Sim Van der Ryn, professor emeritus, University of California, Berkeley; California State Architect emeritus; author of eight books, including Design for Life and Ecological Design

"If you think of Alan Chadwick as the man who taught us to double-dig our raised bed gardens, this remarkable account will take you back to the early days of what we now think of as the organic movement. A remarkable man, with a remarkable backstory!"
--Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

"Paul Lee's story of Alan Chadwick captures the wisdom and foibles of a genius. In Lee's telling of the tremendous influence Chadwick had on the organic gardening and the environmental movement, he also lays out the profound philosophical implications of Chadwick's work. Forty years in the making and well worth the wait."
--Michael Stusser, Cowell College class of '69, founder of Osmosis Day Spa Sanctuary, Freestone, California
