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.
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
“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
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
The Ashevillage Sanctuary is a gorgeous example of how you can turn a home and yard into a little paradise. I love this place! I slept so well. My room was beautiful, with earthen curved corners, niches, and clay paint. Everywhere, I saw beauty. I highly recommend that future program participants stay here. Thank you!Kate, NBX Participant & House Guest 2013
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
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
Thanks so much for a meaningful day! It’s good to be back around chickens and fruit trees and compost. There is a sense of safety and harmony I get around permaculture places that I just don’t get elsewhere.Annabeth McNamaramusician
