“Gardening, for Chadwick, is first and foremost an arena for transformations. Transformation is the dream and the duty of the alchemist. The alchemist is servant of the coming dawn who labors to hasten the day when man ends his sojourn of folly and returns to Paradise renewed. It is a noble theoria that Chadwick has and it is perfectly wed to his extraordinary command of horticultural technique. The horticulture of Alan Chadwick speaks for itself. It is an eminently rational, logical, clean system of high yielding optimum organic gardening of unsurpassed simplicity and productivity. It is also an expression of a sublime vision coming out of a deep and ancient tradition of which this man of the soil was an unlikely representative.”
-From the Introduction by Dr. Rodney Blackhirst to Reverence, Obedience and the Invisible in the Garden Talks on the Biodynamic French Intensive System
