    Vertical Harvest, led by Nona Yehia as CEO, is a vertical farming company that uses hydroponics to grow food and produce sustainable farms. Vertical Harvest’s farms are wheelchair-accessible and employ disabled people. The company is partnering with civic leaders and local developers to co-locate farms with affordable housing, bolster local green energy efforts, keep dollars in the community longer and reestablish people’s connection to their farmers and the fresh, flavorful, food we grow.

    The farms can be grown 365 days a calendar year. They are innovative urban models that provide fresh food and social impact. The first farm is located in Jackson Hole in Wyoming. The second will be in Westbrook in Maine. Construction will begin in Spring 2022.
