DID YOU KNOW:
1. October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month
2. 48.9 million Americans have some sort of disability
3. Only 35% of U.S. working–age people with a disability have a job
Being aware is the first step in making a difference. These daunting statistics are the reason the Vertical Harvest team is dedicated to growing both food AND futures in the greenhouse. As we reimagine how food is grown, we also reimagine creating consistent, meaningful work for those who need it most.
