The membrane is unfolded and stretched across the surface of the greenhouse. Arcosanti staff and volunteers are positioned a few feet apart around all of the edges to keep the membrane tight.

The new membrane is in place. The agriculture crew will finish the project, making sure that the membrane is secure. Many vegetables are growing inside the greenhouse this winter.
