Quotes & TestimonialsEvery teacher’s passion made their subject matter feel profound — so much so, that every exemplary compost worm, foraged medicinal weed & bacteria-filled speck of dirt had a voice too — & they spoke volumes. Ashevillage planted within me the seeds I so desperately needed to help me become a proactive citizen of the world & a mindful friend to the earth.Gracie, Resilient Workshop Participant
I wanted to thank you for opening your home & sanctuary to me. It was a pleasure to meet you & everyone else is part of the community. You are an amazing & inspiring group! I am grateful for the time I was able to spend in your company. Best wishes!Jaedy Brie, Sanctuary Worktrader
The quality of this program was only exceeded by the kindness and support of the staff. If this is what an Ashevillage program is like, I will be back soon.Workshop Participant, Lori
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
I’m really grateful for this week, to be able to get my hands dirty & work & 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 the whole team & their compassion & love.Chloe, Workshop Participant
Every time we came back from any of our trips to the mountains, after having a full day, we were really looking forward to coming back “home” and gathering in this holy space.Workshop Participant
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 & devotion & grace & humor. You’re just great! Thank you.

Part of the magic of Ashevillage is all the extraordinary people who work, volunteer & pass through this community hub. What an inspiring place!Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
I feel extremely blessed to have had this opportunity. I know I’ve told some people that I feel like this seems like a dream come true, and even though we are strangers I felt like I’ve known everyone for a long time within my soul even though I’ve never met any one of you. It has been a hell of a ride, and I want to continue it.Ellis, Workshop Participant
