Students beautify Rutland solar array

Posted: Updated:

Rutland got a little more beautiful Tuesday morning.

Some landscape architecture students from the University of Vermont planted flowers and herbs to beautify Green Mountain Power's solar array on Route 7 at Post Road.

The flowering makeover was part of the service learning class, and the students designed and are building the project.

"We really wanted to make it feel welcome for visitors so they are not overwhelmed and the concept of the gardens move right along with the walkways," student Ian Kola said.

Students also learned important business lessons, like how to work within a budget, pitch to a large company and work with a team.
