INSPIRATION. You can stand by a waterfall and soon discover that there are 15 or more waterfalls on the Conservation Partner's Lands. Or hike the trails leading to wildflower meadows and rock-climbing adventure.
Maybe you would prefer to spend a soft afternoon and picnic out by the heirloom apple orchard and the "grape garden"...that is if the noisy Hickory Nut Creek doesn't first beckon you to visit. . . .When you think about how much family and friends could love it here, I know you will smile.
PICNIC CONTEXT: Possibly consider the building sites with good solar-orientation so close by, while you are enjoying your day on the conservation land. Hickory Nut Forest is an Ecovillage in the making. If picnics are not enough, you could live at Hickory Nut Forest (conervation neighborhood) where you can choose to enjoy the benefits of community camaraderie and all that surrounds you. ..al the time!
