Quotes & Testimonials
Natural building is a part of the sustainability movement that is rapidly growing in our world. I love it! I’ll take this knowledge deeper, building and designing projects back home.Shelley Stenzel, Natural Building Apprentice
I’ve loved how we’ve functioned as a group, it’s been really inspirational. We’ve been aware of, and adapted to each others needs. I think that’s an important skill for farming, too, figuring out the direction, and then adapting because it’s never going to be what we think.Matt, UFS Graduate 2013
I love what you’re doing here. It is the future. If we are to have a future, this is what the it must look like. And you do it with such love and devotion and grace and humor. You’re just great! Thank you.
-Bonnie Shulman, month-long guest and mathematics professorBonnie, Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
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
After seeing all the organization and work involved as well as the knowledge of the instructors I feel I got what I paid for and then some. Can’t put a price tag on good health.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
You guys taught me so much about team building, and it helped me so much learning to work together because I’m so used to working by myself. Thank you.Jessie, Natural Building Workshop Participant
The rooms are uniquely beautiful with a welcoming spaciousness and timeless design. They show thoughtfulness and care from the human hand.Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
It was one of the best experiences of my life. Wonderful instructors, beautiful setting and the best brought out of us all. Learning the art and beauty of mixing dirt, clay, straw, bamboo and wood to create nearly any type of structure has been true inspiration.Chris, NBX Participant 2012
Part of the magic of Ashevillage is all the extraordinary people who work, volunteer, and pass through this community hub. What an inspiring place!Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
Ashevillage is a great place to learn and grow with a peer group that is very knowledgeable and experienced. What sets them apart from other educational resources is the fact that they have done everything that they teach and can actually show you right in their backyard.Seth McLambEnergy Technician/CoordinatorBuncombe County Schools Maintenance
