The City of Westbrook in partnership with The Day Brothers, LLC has an exciting new mixed-use development project that will be breaking ground this Winter in the heart of its downtown. This project will be Maine’s first commercial urban vertical farm adjacent to a structure combining ground floor retail space, residential units, and a 4-level, free covered public parking garage. This dynamic new development captures Maine’s entrepreneurial spirit.

Make plans to join us in person on December 16, 2021 at the Portland Regency Hotel in Portland as our Moderator, Craig Young, Partner & Broker at The Boulos Company, and MEREDA Vice President, talks with our esteemed panel about how vertical farming is changing the landscape in an urban, sustainable and profitable model.

Joining us are Daniel Stevenson, Director of Economic and Community Development at the City of Westbrook, Nona Yehia, Co-Founder & CEO of Vertical Harvest, and Greg Day, President of The Day Brothers, LLC.
