You are invited to a screening of the film Hearts of Glass, which tells the story of Vertical Harvest (VH), a multi-story, state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that grows crops while providing meaningful, competitively-paid jobs for people with disabilities. The film weaves the story of VH’s launch with the personal journeys of employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Watch the film trailer here.
The free screening will be followed by a panel discussion including the filmmaker, Jennifer Tennican, VH employees and local participants. The event will be approximately 2 hours long.
