      "His talks seem to explode out of the unconscious with an alarmingly
      precise focus, precipitating one toward completely new perceptions of
      the meaning of gardening as a spiritual activity."

      E.M. Schumacher (Small is Beautiful) called Englishman Alan Chadwick
      "the greatest horticulturist of the 20th century." Chadwick was a
      student of Rudolf Steiner, an early advocate of organics, and founder of
      French Intensive Biodynamic System. He railed against the tragic
      policies of corporate agribusiness, while cultivating gardens of sublime
      beauty and production in the 60's and 70's throughout the United States.
      Nearly everyone practicing biodynamics today has been kissed by the
      Chadwick transmission. Up until now his unique artistic approach and
      deep perception of nature were unavailable in writing. Performance in
      the Garden harvests sixteen incredible, inspired and practical talks
      that will help us, as herbalist and friend Paul Lee aptly put it,
      "replant the vital root of existence."

      Reviews

      Alan Chadwick comes across as a wonderfully eccentric and inspired
      character, an extraordinary combination of the visionary, the rhapsodic
      and the practical. One feels he is as highly attuned to the inner world
      as he is attentive to the outer. In fact, his talks seem to explode out
      of the unconscious with an alarmingly precise focus, precipitating one
      toward completely new perceptions of the meaning of gardening as a
      spiritual activity.

      Alan Chadwick's goal, an exciting one, was to 'grow' world peace through
      all of us working individually, and together, with the life forces of
      the garden, its soil and plants to become a participants in life's
      wonderful, rhythmic, and quietly-alive Cosmic dance. Performance in the
      Garden is a rare opportunity to receive insight into the experiences
      Alan shared during his life!

      Mini-Farming; author of How to Grow More Vegetables

      For anyone wanting to DO something in this world, these lectures and
      parables from Alan are a tremendous gift which can open the door to
      awareness and encounter of the deep healing joy in, and love for
      creation that alone can be the inspiration and motivation for reentering
      and recreating the Garden.

      THE GARDEN’S EMMISARY

      Alan Chadwick’s performances over the years would no doubt be considered
      Oscar caliber if they occurred in the theatre. But inhabiting a more
      cosmic system his lectures and classes regarding Biodynamic French
      Intensive Horticulture took him from the gardens he created at the
      university in Santa Cruz, to the Covelo Village Garden Project in Round
      Valley, California and finally to the spiritual community in New Market,
      Virginia. Known for his eloquence and unique terminology his award was
      to pass on to his students the in depth knowledge of his life’s work.

      As editor Crimi so aptly puts it, “Let what is behind the words come,
      from Alan’s Sun if you will. Open yourself and the garden reveals its
      secrets.” We owe our thanks to Crimi for compiling, editing and
      archiving the wonderment of Chadwick. Chapters that expound on cosmic
      forces, fertilization, propagation and roses are but a few that we are
      treated to.

      Take your time and enjoy the journey for in reading this book you’re
      entering the rare air of one of the gardens’ most amazing emissaries.
