Quotes & Testimonials
Permaculture land-use ethics invite us to protect intact ecosystems where they remain and, where ecosystems have been destroyed, to help restore them. Permaculture design also suggests that we take care of earth while taking care of people.Juliana Birnbaum Fox
I definitely got more out of the Natural Building Extravaganza than what I expected. I feel like I learned so much more this week than a whole year of school. It was absolutely worth every penny it took to get me here.Sarah, NBX Participant 2013
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”Buckminster Fuller
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
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.Buckminster Fuller
The rooms are uniquely beautiful with a welcoming spaciousness and timeless design. They show thoughtfulness and care from the human hand.Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
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’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
Permaculture is an idea whose time has come and Ashevillage is a shining example of what’s possible.Dr. Andrew Weil
It was one of the best experiences of my life. Wonderful instructors, beautiful setting and the best brought out of us all. Learning the art and beauty of mixing dirt, clay, straw, bamboo and wood to create nearly any type of structure has been true inspiration.Chris, NBX Participant 2012
