Groundbreaking ceremony today for geothermal greenhouse project

The Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the Geothermal Greenhouse Project at noon today, April 16, in Pagosa Springs Centennial Park, behind the county courthouse.

Mayor Ross Aragon and members of the Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership committee will make a presentation about this community project, and introduce all our local partners.

This community project will be a showcase for the alternative energy resources of our community and the viability of putting those resources to commercial use; provide a local source of fresh, organic produce to local businesses and residents; provide an educational resource for regional schools and adult groups on topics of alternative energy, renewable resources and organic permaculture; and serve as an economic driver for our rural community by being a tourist attraction and an attraction for other alternative energy and permaculture-related businesses.
