1 comment

DEAREST KICKSTARTER FRIENDS, WE DID IT!!!!!!!!

On Thursday, June 20th, we presented to the 5 member Wyoming State Lands and Investment Board to approve a $1.5M Wyoming Business Council Grant to build Vertical Harvest of Jackson Hole. There was drama down til the last second, but after an hour of intense questioning, the vote came in at 3-1 in favor, WHICH MEANS.....WE ARE MOVING FORWARD!

We wanted to let you know that now that we have all of the funds to construct the greenhouse we are working to break ground in the spring of next year. We we will be delivering those tomatoes to your door sooner than you think! 

Thank you Kickstarter for helping us show Wyoming how much support there is out there for our idea. We couldn't have done it without you, we will make you all proud. 

WEAR THOSE TEE-SHIRTS TODAY AND TELL EVERYONE THIS THING IS HAPPENING!!

With gratitude,

Nona and Penny

Dear WONDERFUL Kickstarters,

We are sorry you haven't heard from us in a while, but we had a good reason for our slience. 

We were working hard on our presentation to Jackson's Town Council on February 4th. This was an important milestone as we needed to get the Council's support in order to submit our Wyoming Business Council Grant application that will finish our capital campaign.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT WE GOT A UNANIMOUS RESOLUTION OF SUPPORT!!!!!!!!!

Our work is not done, we still need to do a lot of work for the grant, but we coundn't have imagined a better result. The Council saw a project that has been vetted by key leaders in the industry and the community, one that is visionary, but based on practical concerns. We are very proud of the result.

We are working to get your rewards together and will start shipping them to you in March! 

We will update you on our grant application and let you know if there is anything you can do to help.

Love,

the VH team
