Grow Community is a new urban neighborhood on Bainbridge Island, just a 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle. With beautifully designed solar-powered homes, shared community gardens and clean transportation options, Grow allows all generations to enjoy a high-quality and healthy lifestyle.

Grow Community is:

  • The largest solar community in Washington state.
  • The first neighborhood, The Village was one of nine endorsed One Planet Communities® in the world, and the second in North America. Our homes allow residents to live within the resources of the planet.
  • Taking sustainability development beyond LEED standards, with net-zero energy homes, a highly walkable community and community gardens.

Our Grow Community goals:

  1. To create an intentional urban community that enhances the quality of life of residents by making sustainable choices both accessible and affordable
  2. To demonstrate that net-zero energy homes, built with sustainable materials, can be built and sold at a price point that is replicable on any scale.
  3. To build a truly intergenerational community, one that is as welcoming to a 73-year-old as it is to a 3-year-old.
