Convivium is the Latin word for “feast”. It is the idea of coming together in celebration around food. The mission of Convivium Urban Farmstead is to create community around food — growing, preparing, preserving, and of course, enjoying food. We will be sharing our mission through educational and community outreach activities for both children and adults. Convivium Urban Farmstead is located in an older neighborhood Dubuque, Iowa. The property consists of  two1920s-era greenhouses, an enclosed building which will house a commercial kitchen, and a half-acre lot, where we will feature outdoor gardens.  While the  structures on the property are fairly sound, there is still a lot of work ahead of us. (Follow along on the renovation process in our Blog.)  Read more about our plans in the sections below.
