Farming is Alive and Breathing in Sustainable Communities Near Asheville, NC.

farmland near asheville ncThe 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.
