Orchids Garden Centre & Nursery
Orchids Garden Centre & Nursery is an orchid-growing greenhouse that also provides a full line of annuals and perennials and holiday blooming plants. Under new ownership, this Waunakee business is expanding to include local handmade pottery, garden décor and other display items.

"Plants and flowers need a healthy environment to thrive – and so do people. At Orchids, we have a real interest in protecting our environment," said Kent Franz, owner. "We understand how renewable energy can contribute to the process – that is why we joined Green Power Tomorrow."

Orchids Garden Centre & Nursery chooses to add more renewables to its energy mix to help offset a portion of the carbon dioxide emissions from its electricity use.

"Choosing electricity produced by clean wind or solar resources is easy to do, and it makes a positive impact on the future. Plus, many customers notice the effort and really care," Franz said.

Orchids Garden Centre & Nursery encourages environmental consciousness and smart energy use in other ways.

"We recycle as much as possible. Our yard waste is picked up and used for compost and we recycle used plastic pots," Franz said. "We recently replaced the inefficient single-pane glass on our greenhouses with a double-poly system. Anything we can do will make a difference."
