whole-life skills for a radically different future

About SOIL

BruceWho We Are

School of Integrated Living (SOIL) is an educational organization and social enterprise that teaches whole-life skills for a radically different and sustainable future. We bring together an experienced team of permaculture practitioners, conscious communicators, and unconventional leaders to provide classes that transform our students' inner and outer worlds.

What We Do

SOIL hosts hands-on, skill-building programs and classes from its campus at Earthaven Ecovillage, an intentional community located in the Southern Appalachians near Asheville, North Carolina. These experiences range from weekend explorations of a specific skill to long-term immersions in the practice of Earthaven's sustainable culture. All of our programs promise to teach whole-life skills that deepen into embodied knowledge.

Experience a developing ecovillage for yourself!

Most of SOIL’s classes take place at Earthaven Ecovillage, giving participants a hands-on, skill-building immersion within an authentic community-based, village setting. Tours of Earthaven are also available on a monthly basis, a great way to dip your toe into this long-standing, intergenerational social experiment.
