In Nature’s economy the currency is not money – it is life.Vandana Shiva
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.Buckminster Fuller
I really appreciated the diversity of the people who are here, the ages, backgrounds, what we were doing before, what we want to do, it’s so fun to be around so many kinds of people who all feel inspired to do something different and change the world.Amber, Natural Building 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
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
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
I feel extremely blessed to have had this opportunity. I know I’ve told some people that I feel like this seems like a dream come true, and even though we are strangers I felt like I’ve known everyone for a long time within my soul even though I’ve never met any one of you. It has been a hell of a ride, and I want to continue it.Ellis, Natural Building Workshop Participant
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
