The Villages at Crest Mountain represent Asheville’s first sustainable community and as a neighbourhood fully believes in the ideals of balance and responsibility. Since our founding, our ethos of social and ecological diversity has helped us build and develop an environment that is healthy and productive. We continue to explore ways of ensuring that our community grows in ways that allow for inclusion and choose to avoid indulgence. Our primary objective is the maximisation of sustainability with regards to the land that surrounds us and making sure that all prices are kept at affordable levels.
As a community, we engage in rainwater harvesting, permaculture, green building techniques, food production, renewable energy, and use on-site building materials for the construction and design of our neighbourhood.
