|To see the garden in it's late summer splendor go here.|
We have a greenhouse to aid us through the short summer months. And we use river irrigation to water the lawns and gardens. We compost as much a we can.
The office uses solar power. This photosynthesis panel produces electricity. (At least I think that's what Adventure Man called it?)
We also use wind power to make electricity for the office. Isn't the little wind turbine cute! We get a lot of wind up here!
The pool water is heated by solar as well as each guest cabin's water.
Our paper products are all from recycled paper. Even bathroom tissue. We offer locally made soaps for our guests to use, and we give them a full sized bar of soap with the request that they save the box and take it home so we don't have to throw it out.
We use recycled paper plates and plastic wear as well as recycled cups when we have our Volunteer Weekend, to get ready for our opening. We rip these up and compost them. And we recycle everything that can be recycled but can't be composted.
As you can see from these shot's, this is not our prettiest time of year. The snow is just melting and the grass, where we still have it after our well work last fall, is still dead. The leaves have yet to make an appearance.
