On 3 August 2017 University of California, Santa Cruz reported: A half century of pioneering work in organic farming was evident this past weekend as hundreds of farmers, educators, scientists, and alumni gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Alan Chadwick Garden -- and all that has followed. The founder of the garden that today bears his name, Chadwick was a master gardener who introduced organic farming and gardening techniques to the campus and sparked a movement that would spread those principles far and wide-- decades before anyone coined the phrase 'sustainable agriculture.' Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

. . . One of the hallmarks of what is now the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS), the apprenticeship is a rigorous six-month residential program that immerses participants in hands-on farming and gardening techniques, as well as the scientific underpinnings of sustainable farming. Over the years, the focus has broadened to include social justice issues, such as fair wages and safe working conditions for those involved in food production.

The 30-acre Farm produces about $165,000 worth of organic produce annually. . . . As the organic movement and the principles of biodynamic farming have moved into the mainstream, more universities have established working farms.
