Something is growing in Winslow.

Grow Community — one of a few green communities in the United States — is sprouting at the corner of Wyatt Way and Grow Avenue.

So far, three homes are open to the public as models of the additional single-family dwellings to come in what will be a 131-residential unit complex when complete.

Grow Community is the first residential community in the country endorsed by One Planet Living, a model outlined by BioRegional to make “sustainable living easy and affordable for all,” according to its website.

The idea is to create a way of life where resources from one planet are enough for the world — rather than the estimated five planets necessary, if every person on the planet used resources as Americans do.
