A new urban farm has made its way to the Quad Cities.

On Monday, the Quad City Botanical Center in downtown Rock Island introduced a 320-foot-long food container that will help produce nutritious food for the Quad City area.

The container farm will help solve seasonal limitations that hinder Tapestry Farms from producing nutritious food year-round.

The Executive Director of Tapestry Farms, Ann McGlynn, says this new addition will impact the community in a positive way.

“I really hope that our community can see those alternative ways of growing food locally,” McGlynn said. “Can really have an impact on the health and well-being of all of the people in our community. When all of the people in our community have healthy, culturally relevant food to eat, then everyone’s chances of thriving increase significantly.”
