Quotes & Testimonials
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.
I’m really grateful for this week, to be able to get my hands dirty & work & do so many new things, that’s not normally the case to be able to learn so much so fast. I’m so grateful for the whole team & their compassion & love.Chloe, Workshop Participant
I wanted to thank you for opening your home & sanctuary to me. It was a pleasure to meet you & everyone else is part of the community. You are an amazing & inspiring group! I am grateful for the time I was able to spend in your company. Best wishes!Jaedy Brie, Sanctuary Worktrader
Ashevillage is such a beautiful example of all the teachings of permaculture. This is a living example of what’s possible for us to live in harmony with the earth. It’s really inspiring to be here and and to see it put into use and to see the community build something that can be an example for the rest of the world.Workshop Participant
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
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 & devotion & grace & 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
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
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
I chose to stay at Ashevillage to see & experience what they are co-creating there & also to support their community concept.Ann, Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
