Quotes & Testimonials
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
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
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
Part of the magic of Ashevillage is all the extraordinary people who work, volunteer & pass through this community hub. What an inspiring place!Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
As a busy, widowed mother of 3 small children, I always felt too unsure of myself to safely experiment with fermentation and foraging at home. This intensive experience has demystified everything and I cant’ wait t begin feeding more nourishing foods to my family.Jennifer Wilkerson, Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
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.
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.Buckminster Fuller
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
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
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
