STAUNTON, Va -- Volunteers have been working since last Friday to build a solar powered greenhouse. It is part of putting energy to work for the environment, which is a Dominion Service program.

The greenhouse will be used to teach students how to maintain a garden and the produce grown inside will be used in the school's dining hall.

“It's a good feeling knowing that we have the ability and the tools whatnot to be able to assist down here. To make life more enjoyable for the people down here,” said Supervisor of Construction Projects with Dominion Power Woodrow W. Clifton.

Because Dominion is supplying the tools and labor, the Woodrow Wilson Rehab Center was able to use the money they saved to purchase a bigger greenhouse.
