Slinging dung in the slammer for the environment

The Caribbean island of Grenada off the coast of Venezuela is trying to reach its green energy goals using an innovative approach. Working together with Germany, farmers are installing and learning how to maintain biogas systems with the help of small loans. The Richmond Hill prison is also getting in on the action - inmates are learning how to work with the biogas systems for use on the jail's farm as part of their rehabilitation.
