Residential Internships
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.

Ashevillage Sanctuary
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!
