A physically challenging and intellectually stimulating day of group, outdoor activity that’s not a competitive sport? Yes, it’s possible, and happening this spring on the bucolic grounds of Scott Farm, Dummerston, VT. The Stone Trust is offering workshops in the time-honored craft of building dry stone walls. Participants come from all walks of life to develop and sharpen their skill in creating structurally sound, “stone-only” constructions.
Instructors, certificated with the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain, guide students through the hands-on techniques that can be applied to any type of stone or landscape situation. In addition to the two-day outside workshop May 19-20, the new indoor facility in the farm’s historic barn will host a one-day event on May 6.
For more information and registration go to the Stone Trust website, or contact Zon Eastes, firstname.lastname@example.org, 802.380.9550.
Established in southern Vermont in 2010, The Stone Trust seeks to preserve and advance the art and craft of dry stone walling through education, events, and outreach projects.
