The Absolute Dream Acreage and the Baby Boomers

Dream Acreage and Well-Behaved " Baby Boomers"

They arrived right on time. A young-ish-looking couple who told me they  both were over 50! TheBaby Boomers seeking exquisite Ashevile NC landy must have been doing all the  right things. They were, they admitted, into sustainable excellence, and I had to laugh since so am I- although my reference point is LAND here in the Asheville, NC mountains.

Were they looking for LAND to help keep them flexible and strong, or to establish a pocket neighborhood in the valley?


They told me they wanted to "grow vegetables...maybe plant some fruit trees in sunny spots"...and they wanted to continue to work the acreage.

I said, " Are you sure you want to work that hard? Possibly you might want just to practice YOGA!"

They laughed in unison...They'd  discovered yoga long ago...and had found out that it was much more than just exercise .

OK...I was convinced...they were ready for LAND! And here in the mountains near Asheville, there is a sumptuous variety from which to choose...

    big organic farms, rolling gently into steep tracts,
    building lots in conservation neighborhoods,
    recreational land,
    green-built home sites,
    wooded acreage,
    properties that run by the stream all the way to the ridges...

  acreage calling for development as wee-green pocket neighborhoods

 (see photo)

Their dream  acreage is fully landscaped native plants, perennial  flower and vegetable gardens, fruit trees, nut trees,  one of those streams I mentioned AND is acreage where  all sacred traditions and indigenous ways of life will be honored.

And I know just the place...
