Upper Garden Grounds
The ReRooted upper garden grounds feature ornamental flowers, an edible landscape, a small vineyard and orchard, and heirloom vegetables for the house. The space is being readied for rental as an outdoor event space for small to moderate gatherings.
ReRooted Upper Gardens with view of the main building
In 2023, over 75 volunteer hours were put into creating several miles of trails throughout the land upon which RRC sits. The intention of these trails is to provide a space for residents and guests at RRC, nature enthusiasts, and community members to immerse themselves in the unique natural landscape that comprises the Driftless area.
The ReRooted main house has a commercial kitchen attached, allowing for culinary preparation for events or packaged products from local food sources. There is a large, six-burner stovetop and double oven, along with large refrigerator and wash sinks. This is undergoing recertification and will be available for rent in the near future.
The ReRooted greenhouse incubates starts and provides for cultivation of seed crops. Improvements are planned to be able to make the greenhouse into a year-round farm-to-table growing space. Greenhouse space can be made available on a limited basis to those interested.
Open Garden Space
There are many potential spaces available to grow food on the ReRooted grounds, in the main gardens and adjoining areas. ReRooted is excited to support local farmers and entrepreneurs with endeavors to grow organic food and other special projects focusing on food production, and land stewardship, and community well-being.

This historic log cabin on the property was first built in 1851 by the Busness family. On Christmas day in 1853, Reverend Vilhelm Koren welcomed what became Washington Prairie church, the first Lutheran congregation of the Norwegian diaspora in the Decorah area. Reverend Koren later became one of the founders of Luther College. Moved and reconstructed in 2010, the cabin offers a venerable homey atmosphere, and calls back to the early days of settlement in the Midwest. Situated on a hill above the main ReRooted gardens, the cabin has a beautiful view and nestles in its natural surroundings. There is a small but complete kitchen incorporated with the main level seating area, upstairs bedroom with queen bed, and bathroom and shower in the basement. The cabin is electrified for lighting and kitchen, with heating via an antique wood stove.
The Luther Cabin is rented to those interested in extended stays while working on ReRooted initiatives or their own incubator projects, or as an artist's retreat. The cabin is currently occupied full-time, however if you are interested in an historical tour, please connect with us.
