Quotes & Testimonials
We believe that in order to create the world we want, we must live it now.
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
Permaculture is an idea whose time has come and Ashevillage is a shining example of what’s possible.Dr. Andrew Weil
“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
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
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
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
It was one of the best experiences of my life. Wonderful instructors, beautiful setting and the best brought out of us all. Learning the art and beauty of mixing dirt, clay, straw, bamboo and wood to create nearly any type of structure has been true inspiration.Chris, NBX Participant 2012
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
