What do landfills and art have in common? The Jackson County Green Energy Park captures methane gas from the old Dillsboro landfill for use as a fuel. It provides process heat for: Blacksmith forges, metal foundry, glassblowing studios, greenhouses, facility heating and pottery kiln. The Jackson County Green Energy Park utilizes clean, renewable energy resources to encourage economic development, provide environmental protection, and offer educational opportunities that together will help lead towards a more sustainable future for western North Carolina. The tour includes a glassblowing demonstration, a walking chat on the GEP’s renewable energy use and history, a visit to our ceramics kiln, and a blacksmithing demonstration when available.
