KUSA - Before we head into the workforce, many of us choose to do internships or get some other type of related work experience before we get a job.

9NEWS reporter Vida Urbonas has the inspirational story of one group of students with disabilities working hard to break into the horticulture business.

SHALOM is now selling SHALOM Peace Planters, which are creative potted plants using recycled pots donated by Arc Thrift Stores.

The new venture is perfectly aligned with SHALOM Denver's mission of helping people with developmental disabilities gain valuable work skills so they can move forward in either a supported or independent work setting.

SHALOM Denver works to give those with disabilities the training and skills they need to succeed in the greater community.
