Live, Learn, & Grow with us! Three interns will live and work with Ashevillage Sanctuary & Institute for four months at a time. You will work 35 hours per week starting with a 3-week trial, which counts toward your 4 months. Your focus will be on a variety of tasks, from hands-on gardening and homesteading projects; to hospitality and house care; to administrative and outreach support, to other seasonal tasks and needs — getting to experience the full spectrum of what we do. Camping/lodging and in-season produce from the garden will be provided, however you will need to cover additional food costs. You will have a one-week break during the four months. For details & application visit: www.ashevillage.org/RES.
WELCOME to our headquarters, Ashevillage Sanctuary, a transformed junkyard and crack house turned into one-acre, eco-urban demonstration site, living-learning laboratory, and guest house...just a few blocks from downtown Asheville, NC. Our team has developed the site into a demonstration of integrated ecological systems with extensive gardens, ponds, a waterfall, natural buildings, recycled stone courtyard and ampitheatre. You can walk out the front door and be in town in just eight minutes, or out back into 60 acres of woods and trails. We believe in creating the world we want to live in and putting our beliefs into practice in our own backyard. We grow food and medicine, capture and use rainwater, and show others how to do the same. Please come visit, stay for a month, participate, and take the leap toward being all that you can be in this world!

We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
Ashevillage is such a beautiful example of all the teachings of permaculture. This is a living example of what’s possible for us to live in harmony with the earth. It’s really inspiring to be here and and to see it put into use and to see the community build something that can be an example for the rest of the world.Workshop ParticipantLove your programs and initiatives.

You will not meet a more heartfelt, dedicated team of teachers and assistants. You might even leave with a new community of friends to help you build that project you have always dreamed of.Michael, NBX Participant 2012
I’m really grateful for this week, to be able to get my hands dirty and work and do so many new things, that’s not normally the case to be able to learn so much so fast. I’m so grateful for all of the teachers and their compassion and love.Chloe, Natural Building Workshop Participant
This workshop will allow me to step into the new level of food preparation choices that I never thought I would be able to try: yogurt, kombucha, canning & so much more.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
