Event Description

Cultivate a mandrake with Pomona Sprout, Hogwart's renowned Herbology Professor, then take it home to help ward off petrification!

Celebrate Harry Potter Week at the Cedar Rapids Public Library!

Professor Sprout's Mandrake Cultivation Class in Beems Auditorium B gives wizards (and muggles) a chance to cultivate a mandrake to take home. As you know, mature mandrake root is essential to mandrake restorative potion, which could cure you if you encounter petrification. Slight chance of immature mandrakes on premises; students responsible for their own hearing protection. 

Professor Pomona Sprout teaches Herbology at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
