Iowa Arboretum’s own Kevin Lantz and family members will be making scrumptious pancakes on March 11, from 9 a.m.-noon. Come hungry and challenge Kevin to make interesting-shaped pancakes for you.

Apple Grafting

Sunday, March 12, 1-3 p.m.

We are pleased to offer an afternoon with Dan Bussey, orchard manager from Seed Savers Exchange, Decorah. Propagation techniques have evolved over the years, but as Dan will demonstrate, the whip-and-tongue graft is the most favored by fruit tree professionals.

There is a maximum enrollment, so we ask you to preregister by calling 515-795-3216. Payment is required at the time of registration — $35 students, $40 members, $45 non-members.
