Quotes & Testimonials
The rooms are uniquely beautiful with a welcoming spaciousness and timeless design. They show thoughtfulness and care from the human hand.Ashevillage Sanctuary guest
I feel extremely blessed to have had this opportunity. I know I’ve told some people that I feel like this seems like a dream come true, and even though we are strangers I felt like I’ve known everyone for a long time within my soul even though I’ve never met any one of you. It has been a hell of a ride, and I want to continue it.Ellis, Natural Building Workshop Participant
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
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
After seeing all the organization and work involved as well as the knowledge of the instructors I feel I got what I paid for and then some. Can’t put a price tag on good health.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
You guys taught me so much about team building, and it helped me so much learning to work together because I’m so used to working by myself. Thank you.Jessie, Natural Building Workshop Participant
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
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.

There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.Buckminster Fuller
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
