Northwest Grown, a dining and lifestyle program emphasizing locally sourced products, will be one of Village Concepts focuses beginning this year.

As Washington’s first Assisted Living company, established in 1975, Village Concepts is the essence of “locally grown.”  Beginning summer 2015, Village Concepts will be increasing local partnering, programming and menu selections to reflect their Washington roots while supporting its rich history and culture.

As a Washington grown company, Village Concepts is committed to supporting local businesses, farmers, fishermen, and the culture of the great Northwest. Chief Operating Officer Stuart Brown, who keeps honeybees as a hobby, developed the program as a way to connect with local partners to offer residents fresh, local food and support local growers.

“The areas where our communities are located have so much to offer in terms of agriculture and local products. I look forward to expanding the way we share these products with our residents and staff,” says Brown.

Look for Northwest Grown features in Village Concepts’ upcoming newsletters, program calendars and menus.
