Relocation to Asheville'ss Nature-Friendly Land
Asheville’s AT LAST  WE FOUND IT!

In Part 1 of this series,
Looking for Land in All the Right Places I forgot to mention something important!. . .

so, here, I'd like to add that it could be a great idea to head out on the hunt for land with camera in hand.

Over the years we have found that having your camera along is just the thing for those in search of land here in the beautiful valleys and mountains.

Relocating? Yes! But keep a record of the places you have scouted. From baby boomers to first-time home buyers and young families, from artists to organic growers, I especially love the idea of introducing our clients to nature-friendly (AKA eco-friendly)  properties—

green-built homes in eco-friendly, sustainable communities, and in particular land for horse farms, organic growing and conservation.    Here in the mountains, you sure can appreciate the value of sustainable practices where old barns are renovated, the land receives a soft touch and closer in to Asheville, green renovations are "the Thing"... AND....Making happy connections here in Asheville, voted the “Happiest City in the U.S.A.” can be a breeze!  Today, let's focus in on education that the nature lovers will "dig"...<G>.

Here are just a few items from
our “ten-foot high” stack of relocation information: Nature Education

1. Warren Wilson College  
Possibly one of our personal favorites is the amazing Warren Wilson College.  We often visit, walk the trails, attend  sustainability lectures, and introduce relocating clients to tours at the College. You can contact  Stan Cross to arrange for a Green Walkabout tour.

2. Blue Ridge Naturalist Offers classes, field studies, and workshops designed to provide relocating folks and residents of the Greater Asheville area with opportunities to learn more about the natural world and cultural heritage of our mountains.

3. Cradle of Forestry  
 An easy drive from Asheville this nonprofit, founded in 1972 by a group of conservationists, still helps the Forest Service tell the story of forest conservation in our area.

4. Earthaven Ecovillage  You could arrange a visit to Earthaven. Earthaven is an ecovillage about 40 minutes southeast of Asheville. Residents at this ecovillage demonstrate a holistic, sustainable culture.  They teach Permaculture and offer natural building workshops and  weekly tours.

5. Long Branch Environmental Education Center  Here is a beautiful  educational center about 20 minutes from downtown Asheville. There are  workshops and events for “ positive strategies of sustainability and local self-reliance.”

More people are taking photos of the houses they like and even kitchens and bedrooms. I tell them as long as they are not photographing specific items it seems okay to me.
