In 2009, Nona started work on Vertical Harvest of Jackson Hole. Following her passion for local food and experiences growing up with a brother with developmental disabilities, Nona conceived of a three story hydroponic greenhouse that employs people with developmental disabilities while producing local food for the community year round. In 2016 Vertical Harvest opened its doors as a 'for profit business with a non profit soul'. This flagship project embodies Nona’s efforts to pursue projects that are able to have a profound impact on communities based on architectural, economic and social innovation.

LCCC to offer architecture courses

The Institute’s president-elect Chet Lockard says UW does not have an accredited architectural design program, and he says that’s a problem.

“Students have to leave the state of Wyoming to complete their architectural education,” Lockard said. “Often times they don’t return.”
