WHO WE ARE
The Carolina Crescent is the name of both a unique region of the country AND our organization dedicated to the advocacy and promotion of resilient living.
Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina make up a portion of the Blue Ridge Escarpment – the bottom of the Appalachian Mountain chain. This area has over 2,000,000 acres of protected forests and land with an unsurpassed biological and geological diversity; often being referred to as one of the most resilient places in the entire world.

In addition to the expansive quality of life amenities available in the Carolina Crescent, the region is also a fast-growing hub for education, manufacturing, technology, and healthcare. The area is dotted with large-scale industries such as BMW and Michelin and continues to enjoy the growth of small businesses, making it the economic engine of the Carolinas.
The merging of innovation and conservation is our goal. Our organization aims to promote the Carolina Crescent as a resilient, sustainable, quality place to retire, raise a family, or start a business. As the area continues to grow, we will also advocate for policies and practices that protect and sustain our natural resources – the foundation of the life available in the Carolina Crescent. We feel that through innovative approaches to growth, we can simultaneously enjoy economic prosperity and sustainable living.
