St. Croix Falls was fortunate to have some visitors last week who absolutely love our town. They definitely saw how we’ve really created something special and unique in our city. The trails, the energy, the flavors.
The visitors were Lisa Kivirist, her husband John Ivanko and their son Liam. Lisa and John operate a bed and breakfast near Monroe, Wisconsin called Inn Serendipity. Inn Serendipity is a green bed and breakfast in that they actually create more energy through solar and wind then what they need for the Inn and they also use only local foods.
Lisa brought her family because she offered a free workshop called “See Jane Grow” that brought together 24 women in our area to learn and network about how to have, or how to create, a business that is profitable and green, or ecopreneuring.
Lisa and John are also noted authorities and authors on different aspects of the “eco” world including eco-tourism. That’s why their inenthusiasm about SCF is so important and we should listen. John blogged about his visit here -here’s the link. Enjoy!
