Alan Chadwick Archive

Alan Chadwick

We are excited to share a new website dedicated to sharing the life, work, vision and legacy of Alan Chadwick (1909-1980), an English master gardener and horticulturalist. In March of 1967, Chadwick with the help of only a fork and spade alongside a few students began building what is now the beautiful Chadwick Garden at UC Santa Cruz. 

Explore the archive here, and always remember, as Chadwick often said, "If you are going to do anything, do it artistically and do it well!"
