Asheville Homes and LAND!- The Keep In Touch Blog


This Eco-Community = Eco-Innovation as an Exciting Model. Asheville, NC

I am excited about eco-innovation. Especially when eco-innHike Asheville's Hickory Nut Gorge from Eco-Communityovation in the form of a model for eco-community comes to my home town, Asheville, N.C. 

That's right. Big News.

The very first eco-development  in the country to combine wide-ranging land conservation with an eco-friendly community of solar-heated and solar-powered " green-built"  homes, has done just that.

Here, in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, we are known for green-built homes and for thoughtful land planning. But this eco-community is unique.



More than that, I think it is simply exciting.

EXCITING? Here's how:

  • Not far from the cultural hub of Asheville, North Carolina yet surrounded by forever-wild mountain forests, soaring cliffs and pristine, cascading streams out your back door, this eco-community  thrives on nature.
  •  From the home you create, you can walk for miles, discover ancient treasures and waterfalls, and camp under the stars.
  • Western North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains meet the magnificent Hickory Nut Gorge here. (see photo)
  • This is a model for eco-innovation. Where else, for example, could you find renewable energy from wind power, hydropower, and geothermal sources, combining to offer a true net-zero-energy community, creating more renewable energy than it uses?
  • You get to participate in the excitement-designing an eco-community, building green homes, protecting the environment and helping to create a sustainable world. 

To live sustainably in this beautiful, peaceful, healthy, sacred place in the magnificent North Carolina mountains is to prosper.

janeAnne, I truly love Ashville and am so lucky it is only and hour and a half away.  I really want to go to the annual Craftman weekend.  I found it on line a while back but I love the Craftsman architecture and furniture as you find at your wonderful Grove Inn.  Being eco-friendly makes it even better!

Like your GREEN development (featured at the Eco-All-Stars Group) this is one amazing enterprise. I'll be updating y'all on the-progress. No web site yet, but we are expecting one by next month and I'll let you know all about it. In the meantime, the next time you are up this way...I'd love to see how we could work together on this...

janeAnne = you make Asheville sound so exciting. Many Floridians have second homes in North Carolina - maybe I'll have to make a trip up there to see why they should choose Asheville instead of somewhere else ...
