Our commitment to the Environment includes:
Thinking about all of our futures - as of January 19th 2015 we will be operating on 100% green power supplied by Bull Frog Power
A chance for you to participate as well. Through www.offsetters.ca you can choose to make your event here even more climate friendly for about $2.00 per guest. We invite you to scroll down to the bottom of this page to see what it might take to offset the travel portion of your wedding or special event (and thank you).
We have opted to stop allowing plastic water bottles on site. We do understand the importance of consuming water we simply want our clients to allow us to provide water at no charge in ice-filled containers where they can serve themselves using paper cups (which we will make every effort to recyle). Our 2014 investment in updating our Drinking Water System has resulted in perfect water quality reports this year as mandated by the Health Unit and as tested by Caduceon Labs in both our July and September 2014 tests.
Fields on West Lake is committed to the environment. We started by 'recycling' our circa 1860's buildings. We continue with careful reuse of our resources. For example although the main floor of our barn had to be replaced, we saved the flooring - you will soon see some of it on the first floor of the barn in our admin office (just 10 feet below where it served its purpose in agriculture for 150 years).
Our ongoing goal is to decrease our carbon foot print and to adopt sustainable operating methods wherever and whenever possible. In 2008 we decided to stop selling water in individual plastic bottles - now in 2015 we have stopped our use of dirty electricity.
Please contact us we love suggestions - but just think this photo below taken in May 2014 will now (in 2015) be lit by completely green energy.
