We invite you to come join us for our first Design Charrette for the Hickory Nut Forest Eco-Community. A Design Charrette is a fun way for those interested to share their vision, values and ideas for what makes a truly sustainable, livable community. The goal is to bring people together from different disciplines and backgrounds to explore options and ideas to make a community better.

Is your dream is to live in a multi-generational, eco-friendly community with a center for healing arts and celebrations in a gorgeous setting? The seeds of this dream are already sprouting at Hickory Nut Forest Eco-Community, and we are eager to hear your ideas on ways of growing it further. We want to invite you to our first exploratory meeting of like-minded folks who may be interested in living in Hickory Nut Forest and helping us in realizing this common vision.

Founder of the Honeybee Project empowers locals on the plight & flight of the honeybee Gerton , NC ) It is estimated that thirty-three percent of everything that reaches the American table is pollinated by the honeybee. In North Carolina this equates to $80 million of the state’s economy. Yet, honeybee colonies are dying or disappearing in record numbers. One of many theories is that chemical pesticides and herbicides are causing colony collapse disorder. In contrast to commercial operations, which use direct chemical fumigation, organic bee colonies are not experiencing major declines.
