Cutting-edge food production meets meaningful employment for people with disabilities.
We’re excited to share an award-winning story of inclusion, innovation, and impact with you.
Hearts of Glass shows the journey of a new business, Vertical Harvest (VH). VH is a state-of-the-art greenhouse in Jackson, Wyoming. VH provides meaningful employment for people with disabilities. The film describes how VH began. It shares the stories of employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
