It is a great introduction for landscapers who are looking to get into dry stone walling.
This workshop is located at our new training facility at 2 Lamson Road, Mont Vernon, NH. This site is just an hour outside of Boston, but is great rural site with a historic feel.
Over the course of the day each participant will build about 25 sq. ft. of wall (one side), using local field stone. Participants will learn all the basic rules of structural walling that can be applied to any type of stone and project.
