Quotes & Testimonials
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
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
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?Mary Oliver
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.

Permaculture is an idea whose time has come and Ashevillage is a shining example of what’s possible.Dr. Andrew Weil
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
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
Permaculture land-use ethics invite us to protect intact ecosystems where they remain and, where ecosystems have been destroyed, to help restore them. Permaculture design also suggests that we take care of earth while taking care of people.Juliana Birnbaum Fox
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
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
