Event Description
Casting the Iron Garden

Historical Furnace and Wild Garden tours followed by an Iron Pour

Rivers of Steel is partnering with the Penn State Master Gardener Program, Carbon Arts, and local Pittsburgh artisans to create an Iron Garden Walk.  

This collaborative iron pour will provide a first-hand look at the process and skills of casting molten iron into pattern molds. This same process produced the iron that built our nation and many of the world's largest structures during Pittsburgh's legacy era as "Workshop of the World."

This special event includes the pouring of 12 interpretive plaques to be installed on site in the new Iron Garden Walk, and the pouring of the Carrie Deer Antlers, an exclusive Save the Carrie Deer Kickstarter reward.

Historical/garden tours of the site and other activities are planned for this unique event.  

When:  Saturday, October 25, 2014
    2:00 - 7:00 PM
    Rain or Shine
    Bring a lawn chair

The furnace will be tapped at 4:00 PM

Admission:  $10
