Mountain Xpress staff photographer Jonathan Welch made the rounds last Saturday, capturing images from Ashevillage in Action, the hands-on component of the Ashevillage Building Convergence (see “Village People,” June 11 Xpress). From mosaic-making to music-making, the weekend’s activities were meant to promote sustainability and deepen community connections.
