Hello BEST-ers,

In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a new vertical farm is opening. It is a three
story greenhouse, and the facility has been built on an unused, empty lot
near the local theater. Not only is the vertical farm being designed with
the community in mind, they have decided to hire workers with disabilities
and designed the building for these future employees. Upon completion, the
greenhouse will utilize radiant heat and solar power as well as traditional
heating and cooling techniques to sustain an even temperature year round.
There will also be a public atrium where members of the community can come
and watch employees at work.

I personally am interested to see how the vertical farm does after work is
completed and it begins producing food.

Happy Monday!
Jacquelyn
