About our guides:

Emily and Christopher Appelman run a homestead in the Driftless Region with their two girls Sparrow and Esmae. The Appelmans have more than five years of experience in hardwood log and mulch mushroom cultivation. During these 5 years of growing they have also utilized their knowledge of mycoremediation to its full revitalizing potential by using mycoactive compost in their soil to better the health of their crops and the surrounding ecosystem. Outside of this they enjoy teaching many Mycorrhizal related workshops throughout Iowa and Wisconsin.
