Penny McBride feels people have lost the important connection to food they once had.
She thinks it’s crucial that Jackson’s young folks know where their vegetables are grown, which is why she and fellow Vertical Harvest co-founder Nona Yehia entered a business partnership with Teton County School District No. 1.
Last week Jackson Hole High School received the first batch of greens from the 13,000-square-foot, three-story greenhouse that is Vertical Harvest.
“Those greens were part of the harvest from our trial run,” McBride said.
