Lunch and Learn: Charcoal Making in the Pinelands

Charcoal Making in the Pinelands – Patti Trasferini and Mary May

Join Patti Trasferini of Cloverdale Farm County Park and Mary May, basket weaver, as they explore how Ocean County settlers spanned deeper into the Pine Barrens as they took  advantage of the natural resources of bog iron and the plentiful Pitch Pine forests in the creation of charcoal to fuel the iron industry. This program will take an in-depth look at the process of making charcoal, the tools involved, and the lifestyle lived by many of Ocean County charcoal makers, commonly referred to as Colliers.

Two lecture times: 9:30am and 12:30pm
