We, the Grow Team would like to wish you all a wonderful holiday season! As the days get colder and the holidays are upon us we would like to take a moment to reflect on the past year. In 2012 we opened our first three model homes to the community for tours and are now underway with construction of the next 20 homes and 20 rentals that will make up the first phase of Grow Community. After the New Year the first residents will be moving in and calling Grow home. The Grow Team has been working behind the scenes on this project for over two years now and it is wonderful to finally see the community begin to come together.
With Grow Community, we presented the concept of One Planet living – a community that allows residents to reduce their ecological footprint while maintaining a happy and healthy lifestyles. In a year where health, global climate and community wellbeing has risen to the top of our consciousness, we hope that our small project will provide an example of how we can all impact change in our communities.
We know we are incredibly lucky to be living and working on Bainbridge Island. Our island is just the place where our dream of a healthy, safe, and intergenerational community can become a reality. As Grow Community takes shape we continually strive to create a place that both fosters community and is also restorative to our earth. We are impassioned every day when we meet community members that share our vision and that are dedicated to improving the world around us.
We are thankful for our family, friends, neighbors, fellow co-workers and the community we live and work in. We hope that you will continue to contribute and help us to build positive community on Bainbridge Island in whatever way inspires you.
From our family to yours we wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
The Grow Team
