Robey Memorial Library in Waukon offers a variety of learning opportunities throughout the year with our Live & Learn series. All our programs are free (unless otherwise noted)—registration is encouraged.

On Thursday, February 27 at 5:30pm Robey Memorial Library is hosting a Cultivate Hardwood Log Mushrooms program presented by Stone Hollow Gardens and Shroomery of Dubuque, IA.

Come and learn from experienced mushroom log cultivators how to small-scale log grow gourmet and medicinal mushrooms. Get hands on experience in the inoculation process. Learn the importance mushrooms hold in everyday life within our bodies and environment. Discover the difference between bag grown and hardwood log grown mushrooms as well as the challenges and advantages presented by each method.

Emily and Christopher Appelman of Stone Hollow Gardens and Shroomery run a homestead in the Driftless Region. The Appelmans have hardwood log cultivated mushrooms on their homestead for over 5 years.

This program is presented in part by the Allamakee County Master Gardeners. Please contact Robey Memorial Library at (563) 568-4424 or with questions.
