Quotes & Testimonials
After a week at Ashevillage’s Resilient Living Workshop, I am a changed person. Having been a New Yorker for the past 16 years, I came in with very little knowledge about the field of permaculture, much less any knowledge about growing my own vegetables or living anywhere other than in the thickest of grids. I expected to gain an introduction to permaculture and some skills to get me started, but I didn’t expect to have such a joyful, tearful, heartwarming mind and soul shift.Gracie, Resilient Living Workshop Participant
Please feel our gratitude deeply. Know that we share wishes for abundant living, strong health, joy, and fun aplenty! Many, many thanks! Love forever.Kathy and Kelsey Detwiler

We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back, that we are being born into a new normal: a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth, a new experience of being human.Charles Eisenstein
I feel a great deal of gratitude for all of the instructors, for passing on this ancient wisdom, and helping me and all of us connect those ties that have been so painfully severed from our ancestry. I feel more whole and more complete just from this week, and I feel so much joy and inspiration and hope just knowing that every single one of you here is probably feeling as excited as I am to go actually do projects and share this with everyone you know.Josh, Natural Building Workshop Participant
This workshop far exceeded my expectations – better than I could have imagined.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
