Quotes & Testimonials
Part of the magic of Ashevillage is all the extraordinary people who work, volunteer, and pass through this community hub. What an inspiring place!Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
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
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
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 such a beautiful example of all the teachings of permaculture. This is a living example of what’s possible for us to live in harmony with the earth. It’s really inspiring to be here and and to see it put into use and to see the community build something that can be an example for the rest of the world.Workshop Participant
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
After a week at Ashevillage’s Resilient Living Workshop, I am a changed person. Having been a New Yorker for the past 16 years, I came in with very little knowledge about the field of permaculture, much less any knowledge about growing my own vegetables or living anywhere other than in the thickest of grids. I expected to gain an introduction to permaculture and some skills to get me started, but I didn’t expect to have such a joyful, tearful, heartwarming mind and soul shift.Gracie, Resilient Living Workshop Participant
“Empowering people to solve problems in a practical and creative way, regenerate their environments, build resilient communities and create abundance while caring for the earth. Based on the earthcare ethics and ecological principles permaculture can be readily applied and adapted to specific cultures and climates.”Robyn Francis, Djanbung Gardens
You will not meet a more heartfelt, dedicated team of teachers and assistants. You might even leave with a new community of friends to help you build that project you have always dreamed of.Michael, NBX Participant 2012
