Quotes & Testimonials
I feel a great deal of gratitude for all of the instructors, for passing on this ancient wisdom, and helping me and all of us connect those ties that have been so painfully severed from our ancestry. I feel more whole and more complete just from this week, and I feel so much joy and inspiration and hope just knowing that every single one of you here is probably feeling as excited as I am to go actually do projects and share this with everyone you know.Josh, Natural Building Workshop Participant
Natural building is a part of the sustainability movement that is rapidly growing in our world. I love it! I’ll take this knowledge deeper, building and designing projects back home.Shelley Stenzel, Natural Building Apprentice
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
Ashevillage is a great place to learn and grow with a peer group that is very knowledgeable and experienced. What sets them apart from other educational resources is the fact that they have done everything that they teach and can actually show you right in their backyard.Seth McLambEnergy Technician/CoordinatorBuncombe County Schools Maintenance
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
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.
One of the most important things about permaculture is that it is founded on a series of principles that can be applied to any circumstance—agriculture, urban design, or the art of living. The core of the principles is the working relationships and connections between all things.Juliana Birnbaum FoxSustainable Revolution: Permaculture in Ecovillages, Urban Farms, and Communities Worldwide
I feel really confident now to think ‘how to farm,’ to think ‘whole systems,’ and to think like ‘food systems,’ and even more than that, how to approach life in general. My perspective has been very enriched and totally changed.Ian, UFS Graduate 2013
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’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
