Then, join us for a virtual panel discussion with the filmmaker, CEO/Co-Founder of Vertical Harvest, a graduate of Jackson Hole High School’s Transition Academy, and local educators focused on inclusion, food production and sustainability.

The film follows the tumultuous first 15 months of operation of Vertical Harvest Farms (VHF) of Jackson, Wyoming, a state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that provides meaningful employment for people with disabilities. The film weaves the story of VHF’s launch with the personal journeys of employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Plants and people grow together in this intimate portrait of innovation, inclusion and impact.

We welcome community members from both sides of the Tetons. If you are interested in any or all of these topics — disability inclusion • sustainability • local food production • social entrepreneurship — watch the film and join the discussion.

This virtual programming celebrates the donation of “Hearts of Glass” educational screening kits to middle and high schools in Teton County School District #1 (WY) and Teton School District 401 (ID).
