UW planning and environment students tour Grow

Grow Community hosted a tour this past weekend for University of Washington students interested in innovative approaches to urban planning.

Sixteen students representing the university’s urban design and planning, architecture, environmental engineering and computer science programs toured the grounds.

“The goal of our visit was to experience a successful example of an innovative, intentional and sustainable community,” said Carolyn Foster, a senior in the Community, Environment and Planning program.

Grow embodies many program components, she said, including sustainability in action, stewardship of the land through gardening, mindful living, and creating successful social spaces that encourage spontaneous interaction.

“Everyone had a wonderful time and came away impressed and inspired,” Foster said.

Thank you to UW students for visiting Grow and finding out more about our approach to urban design and community building. Come back anytime.
