The Pennsylvania Heartland Herb Society has generously supported Old Dry Road Farm's School Program with a grant. Each spring the school program provides elementary school children with a day on the farm, learning about life in colonial times and helping plant onions, carrots, peas and beans and more. Thank you, Pennsylvania Heartland Herb Society, for your continuing support of our educational program.

Our public demo and education day will be held again at Old Dry Road Farm near Blue Marsh Lake, Wernersville, PA (Berks County) on Saturday August 6 from 9am to 4pm. This is a free, fun, family event to promote the craft of blacksmithing.

There will be forging stations set up for demonstrations and for open forging by members of the public.

For children there will be forging sessions using clay (no fire) to experience what forging is like.

Over the lunch hour there will be a forging contest for chapter members and others to partake in.

A food truck will be on site for food purchases.

Tailgating and sales: no charge for traditional "tail-gate sales" of used equipment, etc. out of your vehicle. $20 fee must be paid to Old Dry Road Farm for other sales (selling your forged products, commercial sales, other craft sales, etc.)

Iron Master of The Day: To Be Determined

Iron In The Hat Auction.

This will be a big public event for our chapter, so tell friends & family, and publicize it far & near.

Dog friendly event. Held rain or shine.

Directions: it's a bit off the beaten path, so if you can GPS or MapQuest, etc. it might be a good idea to do so. GPS coordinates: N. 40.37039, W. 76.06247
