Quotes & Testimonials
My workshop with Jenny McGruther at Ashevillage surpassed my expectations. With so many moving parts I was consistently impressed with how smoothly the staff and volunteers executed everything seamlessly.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
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
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”Buckminster Fuller
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.Buckminster Fuller
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
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.
