Hickory Nut Forest in Gerton N.C. is an evolving eco-community and conservation neighborhood . This eco-community- is an easy drive from Asheville's, cultural amenities, arts, music and delicious cuisine, as well as excellent healthcare all nearby. (17 miles, 23-27 min.) And just 4 minutes to the CSA. If you enjoy farm-fresh produce, you will appreciate how close it is to the eco-community.
The Greater Asheville area is an important "hub" for green and sustainable development. Buyers and investors and sellers of real property will tell you- "GREEN" is the word here in Western North Carolina's mountains. "We are in a sustainable framework, and we're lovin' it!"
Possibly that explains why numerous eco-communities are popping up in and around Asheville, including Asheville area's Hickory Nut Forest. Honoring the Land, the eco-developers placed just 17 lots here, and they are surrounded on three sides by over 800 acres of conservation land. What a place.
From the eco-community, trails (like those seen in the photo) "forever wild" of conservation partners' land.The adjoining 250 acres will serve the community with a activities building and an organic garden. To me this means healthy possibilities.
If you are like me, and you relish just standing by a waterfall , or take pleasure in hiking trails that lead to wildflower meadows and beyond them, rock-climbing adventure, you have got to visit this eco-community! Oh! And while you are there, pick an heirloom apple or grape as you meander over to listen to Hickory Nut Creek . Simple treat? Yes. And satisfying.
