College towns and vegetarian restaurants tend to go hand in hand, and Santa
Cruz has a particularly strong history on this front because the local
branch of the University of California opened in the mid-'60s, when both
the vegetarian and organic farming movements were taking off.
The city's vegetarian scene developed not long after UC Santa Cruz opened
its doors in 1965. By 1967, the university had a groundbreaking student
garden project led by Alan Chadwick, a leader in the organic gardening
movement (see Page M8). The natural foods store Staff of Life opened in
1969 and is still thriving. In 1970, the vegetarian Whole Earth Restaurant
opened on campus, using produce from the student garden project.
