In celebration of planning and fundraising efforts to date, Vertical Harvest will be throwing its second annual Party on the Roof. Overlooking the future site of the greenhouse, the parking garage on Millward and Simpson will play host to the event on July 19th from 6:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m, it’s sure to be the hottest party in town this summer again.
Entry to the party is $30, which includes a food and drink ticket. Vertical Harvest Membership Drive donors will admitted without cost as a thank you. Tickets will be available at the door. Or sign up to be a member, and gain free admittance here: http://fs18.formsite.com/verticalharvest/form1/index.html
DJ VertONE will once again be spinning tunes, and several generous local restaurants, chefs and farms will be paired up to provide delicious cuisine. A silent auction with many great lodging packages and items will be available for bidding throughout the night.
The proceeds from the party will go toward construction costs for the greenhouse.
Vertical Harvest is proud to celebrate 4 months of fundraising, and is pleased to thank 171 members for their generous support. At this point, the membership drive has raised $104,000 toward the $214,000 needed for the first 6 months operating cost
VHJH has recently gained national recognition on sites such as Discovery.com and Inhabitat.com, as the project’s innovation and replicable business plan draw in outside support. The hope is to continue harnessing this support with a national fundraising effort through the KickStarter site mid-summer.
Vertical Harvest will submit a grant application for construction costs to the Wyoming Business Council in September, with the anticipation that it will break ground in Spring of 2013. Next year’s rooftop party will overlook the structure in its building stage.
