Quotes & Testimonials
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
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
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”Buckminster Fuller
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
You will not meet a more heartfelt, dedicated team of teachers and assistants. You might even leave with a new community of friends to help you build that project you have always dreamed of.Michael, NBX Participant 2012
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
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.
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
Permaculture is an idea whose time has come and Ashevillage is a shining example of what’s possible.Dr. Andrew Weil
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.
