Unique “Grow Community” on Bainbridge Island

There is a unique 130-unit development in the works on Bainbridge Island.  It is called “Grow Community” and promises to be totally solar powered and carbon neutral.  In addition they offer community gardens for growing organic fruits and veggies, and an electric car share program for the community.  They are the fifth community to receive the One Planet Living seal of approval, a global initiative launched by the World Wildlife Fund and environmental consultancy BioRegional that promotes zero-carbon emissions, zero waste and car-free cities.

There are homes for sale starting in the $300’s and homes for rent as well.  There are multiple models and floor plans to choose from and you can even add an additional room or outbuilding for extra live/work space or storage.

Personally I love this sustainable community-oriented idea but realize it’s not for everyone. It should do well being located right near the heart of Winslow and a short 35-min. ferry ride from downtown Seattle.  What do you think of this idea?
