Ashevillage Sanctuary
WELCOME to our headquarters, Ashevillage Sanctuary, a transformed junkyard and crack house turned into one-acre, eco-urban demonstration site, living-learning laboratory, and guest house...just a few blocks from downtown Asheville, NC. Our team has developed the site into a demonstration of integrated ecological systems with extensive gardens, ponds, a waterfall, natural buildings, recycled stone courtyard and ampitheatre. You can walk out the front door and be in town in just eight minutes, or out back into 60 acres of woods and trails. We believe in creating the world we want to live in and putting our beliefs into practice in our own backyard. We grow food and medicine, capture and use rainwater, and show others how to do the same. Please come visit, stay for a month, participate, and take the leap toward being all that you can be in this world!
