Alan Chadwick a Gardener of Souls

Gregg Novotny Remembers Alan Chadwick, Part 4


The apprentice trial period at Virginia. Details of the poultry operation there. Gregg's work as beekeeper with hives built according to Chadwick's specifications. Some staff and apprentices were fearful of Alan. Descriptions of his theatrical outbursts, but also his playful nature. Alan's illness and his temperament at Virginia compared to Covelo. The "spiritual" aspects of the Biodynamic French Intensive Method are grounded in practical observation of nature. Learning from experienced farmers rather than from textbooks. (10:14)
