Quotes & Testimonials
We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back, that we are being born into a new normal: a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth, a new experience of being human.Charles Eisenstein
As a busy, widowed mother of 3 small children, I always felt too unsure of myself to safely experiment with fermentation and foraging at home. This intensive experience has demystified everything and I cant’ wait t begin feeding more nourishing foods to my family.Jennifer Wilkerson, Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
Natural building is a part of the sustainability movement that is rapidly growing in our world. I love it! I’ll take this knowledge deeper, building and designing projects back home.Shelley Stenzel, Natural Building Apprentice
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.Rachel CarsonEvery teacher’s passion made their subject matter feel profound — so much so, that every exemplary compost worm, foraged medicinal weed, and bacteria-filled speck of dirt had a voice too — and they spoke volumes. Ashevillage planted within me the seeds I so desperately needed to help me become a proactive citizen of the world and a mindful friend to the earth.Gracie, Resilient Workshop Participant
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
Most problems are simply missed opportunities. The flip side of every problem is a solution.Mark Lakeman, City Repair Institute
“Empowering people to solve problems in a practical and creative way, regenerate their environments, build resilient communities and create abundance while caring for the earth. Based on the earthcare ethics and ecological principles permaculture can be readily applied and adapted to specific cultures and climates.”Robyn Francis, Djanbung Gardens
This workshop far exceeded my expectations – better than I could have imagined.Food As Medicine Workshop Participant
I came to the Urban Farm School so I could start my own farm project. I’m leaving with the knowledge on how to do that, plus so much more. I will never look at things the same way again, from how we grow food, to policy, to culture and society as a whole.Ollie, UFS Graduate 2013
