According to story from News Center Maine, vertical farming company Vertical Harvest is expanding to Westrbrook, Maine with a 70,000 square foot vertical farm.

“We want to grow as much food as possible. We want to employ as many people as possible. We want to do both year-round. That’s what gave us the idea to go up. So at its heart, we want to be able for these farms to serve the community in which it sits, so that means being in the heart of our urban centers,” said co-founder Nona Yehia, per the article.
