Quotes & Testimonials
This workshop will allow me to step into the new level of food preparation choices that I never thought I would be able to try: yogurt, kombucha, canning & so much more.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
We are so thankful for the opportunity to experience Ashevillage on our recent visit to NC. From the moment we stepped on the property, we knew we had entered a special 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
An amazing opportunity to learn about and experience deeply nourishing food traditions. Take this class if you want to reconnect your gut with the land and thousands of years of fermentation practices.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
I feel a great deal of gratitude for all of the instructors, for passing on this ancient wisdom, and helping me and all of us connect those ties that have been so painfully severed from our ancestry. I feel more whole and more complete just from this week, and I feel so much joy and inspiration and hope just knowing that every single one of you here is probably feeling as excited as I am to go actually do projects and share this with everyone you know.Josh, Natural Building Workshop Participant
I love what you’re doing here. It is the future. If we are to have a future, this is what the it must look like. And you do it with such love and devotion and grace and humor. You’re just great! Thank you.

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 have been incorporating fermentation in everything. Just made yogurt cheese to be ready for Friday night’s book club dinner at our house. Everyday I make a new type of dish with some fermentation type of process. I ate a radish salad tonight that I never would have made if not for the class. What I also recall is the fun everyone had, and the good times of being together sharing skills. Good memories.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
Just as water is the foundation of life, it must also be the foundation of design in the built environment.Betsy Damon, Founder of Keeper of the Waters
The rooms are uniquely beautiful with a welcoming spaciousness and timeless design. They show thoughtfulness and care from the human hand.Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
