Folks traveled to Dummerston from all around the Northeast and as far away as Kentucky and New Brunswick, Canada for two days of dry stone walling. Heavy rains (4″!) didn’t dampen the spirits of our intrepid group on Saturday. A dozen workshop participants made good headway despite the mud.
By Sunday morning the sun came out and the stones dried off, making it a perfect autumn day for walling. Besides completing a smart looking length of restoration work on the Scott Farm wall, participants tried their hand at splitting granite using “feathers and wedges.” Grateful appreciation to all for making the weekend a rousing success.
