FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The statewide drought has some Valley students thinking of new and creative ways to save water. Clovis High School students received nearly $10,000 in grants to grow an energy-efficient garden.

Students are using solar panels to power LED grow lights and a large wooden invention to capture rain and the moisture from fog to water their plants. The inventions and structures were commissioned by Clovis High's Ecology Club and built by students in the school's Women in Construction Club.

The students say not everyone their age is aware of how severe the Valley's drought is. They hope to educate their classmates with their eco-friendly garden.
