Quotes & Testimonials
I chose to stay at Ashevillage to see and experience what they are co-creating there & also to support their community concept.Ann, Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
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 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
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 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
Every time we came back from any of our trips to the mountains, after having a full day, we were really looking forward to coming back “home” and gathering in this holy space.Workshop Participant
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
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.
-Bonnie Shulman, month-long guest and mathematics professorBonnie, Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
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
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
