Quotes & Testimonials
I really appreciated the diversity of the people who are here, the ages, backgrounds, what we were doing before, what we want to do, it’s so fun to be around so many kinds of people who all feel inspired to do something different and change the world.Amber, Natural Building Workshop Participant
Sitting at our back doorsteps, all we need to live a good life lies about us. Sun, wind, people, buildings, stones, sea, birds and plants surround us. Cooperation with all these things brings harmony, opposition to them brings disaster and chaos.Bill Mollison, Introduction to Permaculture
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
You all taught me so much about team building, 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
I definitely got more out of the Natural Building Extravaganza than what I expected. I feel like I learned so much more this week than a whole year of school. It was absolutely worth every penny it took to get me here.Sarah, NBX Participant 2013
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
What more is there to do in these times than to show up 100% so that we can be modern Earthlings in healthy relationship with the rest of the living world? We are intrinsically a part of Nature, and recognize that re-defining and creating what is possible in our cities and neighborhoods is essential to our happiness, and the well being of all LIFE on Earth.
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
I came to the Urban Farm School so I could start my own farm project. I’m leaving with the knowledge on how to do that, plus so much more. I will never look at things the same way again, from how we grow food, to policy, to culture and society as a whole.Ollie, UFS Graduate 2013
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
