Location is everything

Walk a few blocks and get to know the exciting downtown of Asheville. The vibrant street culture of our mountain town is filled with organic restaurants that boast local food, cafes, a tea house, (many) yoga studios, an indie movie theatre, art galleries, micro-breweries, and more. We are five minutes to the Biltmore Estate and a few more to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hiking, biking, boating, tubing, dancing, and more are all close by!

Walking the talk!

The Ashevillage team has developed the 1.3 acre site into a demonstration of integrated ecological systems. We believe firmly in creating the world we want to live in by 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. Depending on when you are here, there may be some program or project activity on site — this is a living-learning laboratory.

Highlights from the site include:
• Rainwater catchment ponds and integrated ecological organic landscape
• Two naturally renovated houses with clay paint and plaster throughout
• Beautiful and organic edible, medicinal and pollinator landscape
• Woodland area with natural buildings and access to trails
• Natural beekeeping, compost and mushroom production
• Outdoor cooking area with wood-fired oven
• Recycled stone & urbanite courtyard
