Sharing Nature’s Bounty This Holiday Season

The land here is the ultimate gift.

The rolling Blue Ridge Mountains. The majestic French Broad River. Both millions of years old, both sustaining and nourishing the people of Madison County each day as they have throughout the ages. There’s something humbling and ennobling about these ancient hills. They are not only our home, they are a way of life. They have lessons to teach us—lessons about giving and sharing and abundance. For just as these mountains have been the very foundation and sustenance of families millennia upon millennia, so should we, as members of this small mountain community, look after and nurture our neighbors.


Preserving an abundant living experience for families

Jack Fisher grew up in Madison County. Even as a young boy he was drawn to the natural beauty of the area that abounded on all sides. “I would spend entire days hiking through these mountains,” says Jack. “I remember rafting down the French Broad River as a teenager and stopping along the sandy shores at this one particular spot—a place that is today part of French Broad Crossing, one of our two conservation communities at Preserve Communities. I’m still struck by the natural beauty of this land just as was decades ago. To me this land is a gift, and it’s ours not only to preserve and cherish, but to enjoy with others who share the same vision.” Both French Broad Crossing and The Preserve at Little Pine are more than real estate developments to Jack and his family, they are his home. He lives here. And he is dedicated to giving back to the people who have been his neighbors since childhood: the people of Madison County.

Giving back during the season of giving

In addition to preserving the delicate ecosystems and natural sanctuaries that comprise Preserve Communities, Jack makes a continued effort to give back to others, particularly children and those who may be struggling. One of the ways he does this is by donating $1,000.00  to local charities for every lot purchased at French Broad Crossing or Little Pine. Some of the local charities he supports include: MANNA Foodbank, the Public Schools of Madison County, and Neighbors in Need.


Special Christmas Donations

During this holiday season, Preserve Communities will donate $2,500 to local charities for any lot under contract by January 31, 2019.


“Madison County has been a special place to me since I was very young,” says Jack. “I feel every bit as connected to the people here as I do to the mountains, rivers, and woodlands. I feel it is my duty to give back where I can—that means doing what I can for the people in the community, as well as preserving this land. Both are very important to me.”
