Virginia Green

The Light Well
Orange, VA


Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.

The Light Well

We are an energy and environmentally conscious group of owners and we strive to better ourselves, provide a healthier menu and continually bring down our environmental impact.

It was one of our first business decisions to ensure we think about being green and incorporating it into our plan before the business was opened.

We purchase local meat, honey, produce and eggs and are continually looking for more affordable local products to offer our guests.
