We at Trade Winds Hotel and Bay House Restaurant are so proud of our grounds team for our backyard garden! We captured a photograph of our Grounds Supervisor Richard Abraham en route to the kitchen with some lettuce that was picked today. Aside from lettuce, we also grow cabbage, celery, tomatoes, peppers and herbs and spices.
The garden was started in September of last year and it is just another way for us to do our part in being Green and to contribute to sustainable tourism. Possibly unbeknownst to some, Trade Winds was the first hotel years ago to receive the Green Globe Certification – the travel and tourism industries’ worldwide certification label for sustainable management and operations.
Presently, we are working on expanding the garden in the near future to include more local fruits and vegetables. Stay tuned!
