Asheville Relocating: Grand GREEN Tours Make It Easier

Seems like almost every one who comes to the Happiest City in the USA (that's Asheville) wants to stake a claim here.

So wandering around taking in  Asheville's  landmarks, historic buildings, art galleries and shops soon seems to turn to a desire for deeper investigation of  sustainable and historic neighborhoods,horse farms and eco-communities, urban lofts, and expansive acreages. 

Recently, I talked with the Eco Certified ®Real Estate Consultants  at a local firm. I had heard they offered a remedy for would-be property owners who just couldn't resist Asheville's allure and want to relocate......a particular kind of real estate tour.

 They told me...

"After numerous requests we decided to create what we now call  the Grand Green Tours."

"You just need to make a reservation and, for a nominal fee, you can choose from one of eight tours, " JT told me.

" Some of the favorites are: 1) The Green Homes of Asheville Tour, 2) The Horse-Lovers Foothills and Saluda/Tryon Tour, 3) The Land Legacies-and Hot Springs Tour,  and 4) The River Run Rural Madison County Tour."  (see photo)  

 What a great idea.... tour the Greater Asheville area before you relocate here. 

 Eco Certified ®Real Estate Consultants  are knowledgeable in land and green-built or eco-friendly properties in the Asheville area. So it sounds like a plan....order a picnic basket and set out with someone who knows his/her way around the "sustainable scene".  (I'm told the tours run about 4 hours.)

This is a very COOL idea!  Will it be offered monthly or as they are booked individually?

Indeed! Very cool-green! Offered by reservation-only at this point. But I will speak with the tour guides about monthly offerings!

I agree, very cool idea!  janeAnne, my husband and I are going to be at the Biltmore for two nights in late April...beside the Biltmore, what would you suggest that we do.  A Green home tour might be fun!  BTW, I just wrote a green post...would love your thoughts!
