Where to Find More of Us

Tom Palley wanted to grow food for people.  He was an apprentice with Alan Chadwick at the Garden Project in Round Valley from 75-77.  Afterwards, he cultivated gardens at both the methodist church and at home while the years passed and he raised a family.  In 88 he bought 10 acres near his house in Round Valley and began farming for market. 

Tom said we could use his poem for Alan Chadwick in this bio:  
"Oh ye of silver hair and tongue,
conversing with heaven while standing in dung
one moment the gentleman full of charm
the next going off like an air-raid alarm.
Above your moods your vision towers
of a world not at war but covered with flowers,
vegetables & herbs, fulfilling mans need
and leading him out of the glut of his greed."
