Quotes & Testimonials
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
We felt honored to stay at Ashevillage (such lovely accommodations!), participate in the life and times of such an exciting place, and get to know you and the community. I feel so fortunate to have shown my daughter alternative lifestyles up close and lively; your openness, gracious ease of accommodation, generosity of spirit, sense of humor, positive outlook and passion for what you do (may I go on? your incredible taste buds and cooking talent, beautiful sense of artistry and love, which bring…Kathy and Kelsey Detwiler
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.Every teacher’s passion made their subject matter feel profound — so much so, that every exemplary compost worm, foraged medicinal weed & bacteria-filled speck of dirt had a voice too — & they spoke volumes. Ashevillage planted within me the seeds I so desperately needed to help me become a proactive citizen of the world & a mindful friend to the earth.Gracie, Resilient Workshop Participant
I’m really grateful for this week, to be able to get my hands dirty & work & do so many new things, that’s not normally the case to be able to learn so much so fast. I’m so grateful for the whole team & their compassion & love.Chloe, Workshop Participant
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
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
The Ashevillage Sanctuary is a gorgeous example of how you can turn a home and yard into a little paradise. I love this place! I slept so well. My room was beautiful, with earthen curved corners, niches, and clay paint. Everywhere, I saw beauty. I highly recommend that future program participants stay here. Thank you!Kate, NBX Participant & House Guest 2013
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.
