Wisconsin resort

The Travel Green Wisconsin program is designed to protect the beauty and vitality of Wisconsin’s landscape and natural resources. Wisconsin’s natural resources, wildlife and cultural diversity are among its most important tourism assets. Efforts to preserve them for future generations serve the best interest of Wisconsin travelers, as well as its tourism industry and the state’s overall economy.

Natural Vegetable and Herb Garden

The Natural Vegetable and Herb Garden was developed as a fresh, local and sustainable green initiative to supply Grand Geneva with fresh field to plate produce. It is used as an educational tool for our culinary students who tend and track the growth and development of the garden. All of the vegetables and herbs were donated by Bonnie Plants in Milton, WI.
