The Carolina Crescent seeks to provide and promote the unique nature of this naturally resilient region. We strive to build good stewards of this resource among our existing population and serve as an outlet for information that will attract new residents who understand the importance of being a good steward in the continued resiliency of this land.
We believe that with massive pressure that is being placed on the world through a changing climate, innovation becomes more urgent than ever. Agricultural, horticultural, and architectural advances and adaptations are critical to meet these challenges. Innovation is critical even in the design of preserves and corridors for wildlife and plants to traverse through the complex landscape in a way that allows it to continue to exist as a crucible of life. We serve as advocates for sustainable, resilient growth.
