Harwood Elementary builds new greenhouse

Construction workers have been laying down geothermal tubing for the greenhouse so it will be 74 degrees year round.

Harwood Elementary received a grant from the CHC foundation, which is out of Idaho Falls, for $35,000 in order to build a greenhouse at the school.

Harwood Elementary Principal Don Fryberger stated the CHC foundation fully funded their project; the funds are for the greenhouse, excavation and electricity to get a basic greenhouse started. Once the greenhouse is built, Fryberger said, they will then look into other funding sources in order to purchase plants and other things for the greenhouse.
