The Greater Asheville area of Western North Carolina has seen an influx of people relocating and investing in real property in recent years.
As you can imagine farmland (as described in the previous post) is disappearing at a rapid rate. And, where "working the land" used to mean laboring to harvest corn, tobacco, hogs, cattle, sheep, and native plants, "working the land" now calls to mind bulldozers, cranes, and construction crews erecting residential properties.
Still farming, noted for its impact on the history, economy, and culture of our region, is alive and breathing in the hills and coves just miles from downtown Asheville. And although you may see a group of new homes rising up in the middle of a pasture while cows look on placidly from the other side of the fence, where the grass well may be greener, planting and harvesting still can be found -and it is taking on new forms.
Luckily, there is particular interest in Asheville in sustainable development as the land opens to new development. One organization focused on eco-friendly development here in the Asheville area is the Land-of-Sky Regional Council This organization fosters desirable social, economic, cultural and ecological conditions in the Greater Asheville and sustainable development.
