Vertical Harvest

From the window in our hotel in Jackson we could see a building across the street with what appeared to be blinking lights.  As it turned out, the lights were not blinking at all but trays of lettuce were passing in front of grow lights at Vertical Harvest, an indoor farm.

 The trays of lettuce move on what resembles a flattened Ferris Wheel.
 The top floor of the building is used for growing tomatoes.  Year around salads in a part of the country that has a short growing season.  According to their website the hire variously abled individuals to work in their operation.

That place sounds amazing ... a win-win for people who need fresh produce and for those the company hires.... the kind of entrepreneurial enterprise it's good to hear about.
