Cutting-edge food production meets social good in an ambitious experiment to provide year-round produce to a mountain town, while providing meaningful employment for community members with disabilities.
Hearts of Glass follows the tumultuous first 15 months of operation of Vertical Harvest (VH), a state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that provides meaningful employment for people with disabilities.
The film weaves the story of VH’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 community.
