THE URBAN GARDEN (Seasonal)
Our guests are welcome to harvest, eat, and cook from our garden. Our mission: transform the human experience through sharing food, space, art, and ideas.
The Mound View neighborhood is absolutely beautiful. It has beautiful homes, a nice park within walking distance of the home, a bike trail, and two colleges within walking distance.
If you love history, not only did Grant Wood reside in this Northeast side neighborhood but also his grandparents, aunts, uncles and immediate family. Many of the people he painted and painted for also lived in this area.
Please, take a walk, breath the fresh air produced by the giant, historic trees, and enjoy one of Cedar Rapids finest neighborhoods.
Go for a bike ride (Trail at 20th St NE and K Ave NE) or the Cedar River Trail North. Walk 2 min to Tomahawk Park or 20 min to the larger Daniel's Park. Or visit the restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores or shopping areas nearby. See details below.
