The Garden Guide

Green Gulch Garden

The garden of a Buddhist practice center in the Japanese Soto Zen tradition offering training in Zen meditation. It was started by Alan Chadwick in the 1970s. The garden is arranged more as a series of English garden rooms than as a Japanese garden. Green Gulch is also known as the Green Dragon Temple (Soryu-ji).
