Lewisburg, WV (WVVA) – The West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine signed a long-term lease with the Greenbrier Valley Restoration Project to operate programs and activities at the Montwell Commons Barn.
In partnership with the Greenbrier County Health Alliance (GCHA), the Barn will be used to deliver new programs, services and opportunities for residents to learn skills and practices to actively improve and manage healthy lives.
The Barn will be named the Clingman Center for Community Engagement in honor of Gwen Clingman, who was known for her big-hearted devotion to and nourishment of WVSOM students and the Lewisburg community through generous meals lovingly served for decades at Clingman’s Market downtown.
The Clingman Center will serve as headquarters for the Waste Not/Want Not local food justice program currently in its second year.
A dedication of the Clingman Center and schedule of activities will be coming soon.
