Hearts of Glass - A Documentary from Jackson Hole

Lloyd Vogel



As the CEO of Garage Grown Gear it is great to have the opportunity to support a film that incorporates startups, sustainability, and innovation! As a former high special education teacher, it is also incredible to see a film that brings to life the stories of adults with intellectual & developmental disabilities. 

Our friend (and GGG supporter) Jen Tennican is working to bring her documentary
Hearts of Glass to life, and we are a proud sponsor! Learn more below!

Hearts of Glass tells the story of the critical first year of operation of Vertical Harvest, a highly innovative and risky experiment in growing crops while providing meaningful employment for people with disabilities. This high-tech hydroponic greenhouse is located on 1/10 of an acre in Jackson, Wyoming, a mountain town at 6,237 feet in elevation that has extreme seasonal fluctuations in weather, population and demand for goods and services.

Business drama is interwoven with the personal journeys of dynamic characters who represent an underemployed and underestimated group – adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Plants and people grow together in this intimate portrait of community. 

Please check the project out, and then consider backing her project on indiegogo. Under the sponsors, you'll probably see some more companies your recognize!
