Hearts of Glass follows the rocky start up of Vertical Harvest, a state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that provides local crops to Jackson Hole’s tony restaurants as well as employment for people with disabilities. Plants and people grow together in this intimate portrait of innovation, inclusion and community.
