Celebrate 31 Years of Americans with Disabilities Act and Disability Pride by viewing HEARTS OF GLASS, an award winning documentary on PBS. Use this link to a Hearts of Glass trailer

HEARTS OF GLASS tells the story of how a cutting-edge food production meets social good by growing locally sourced produce while providing meaningful employment for community members with disabilities. Hearts of Glass Vertical Harvest is a year-round urban farm in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Built on just one-tenth of an acre, the high-tech greenhouse grows an amount of produce equivalent to 10 acres of traditional farmland. A portrait of one community's attempt to address pressing issues around local food production, inclusion, and opportunity, Hearts of Glass, will be broadcast in Northeast/Central Ohio on July 26, July 27, and August 1. Check HERE for airings on your local PBS station
