The Blume Community Development Project

Cattle

Taylor Properties Group is a commercial real estate firm specializing in land sales for development or investment. The Taylor Properties Group has recently registered the Blume Community Development project in the Audubon Lifestyles Sustainable Development Program.

The 360 acre property has been used for various forms of agriculture for nearly 100 years, and with the population growth of the Harrisburg, NC region the vision associated with the Blume Community Development Project is to spur the region toward sustainable community development.

Yet almost all cell phones contain enough lead to qualify as hazardous waste under federal regulations. And even lead-free phones are considered hazardous under California regulations because of the high amounts of copper, nickel, antimony and zinc that leach into landfills.

Funds generated through memberships and donations are used to provide fruit & vegetable seeds, wildflower seed mix, and wildlife feed & birdseed to urban and suburban communities around the world.
