Quotes & Testimonials
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
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?Mary Oliver
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
The quality of this program was only exceeded by the kindness and support of the staff. If this is what an Ashevillage program is like, I will be back soon.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
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
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
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
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
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
