Hearts of Glass -- A Vertical Farm Takes Root in Wyoming


'Hearts of Glass' is a plunge into the critical first 15 months of operation of Vertical Harvest (VH), a highly innovative, but risky, experiment in growing crops and providing meaningful employment for people with disabilities. Business drama is interwoven with the personal journeys of individuals who are part of an underemployed and underestimated group, adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Plants and people grow together in this intimate portrait of one community's attempt to address timely and pressing issues around local food production, inclusion and opportunity.
