Remember, too, to scroll through the entire 32 episode archive for other luminaries who highlight the relationship of human beings to the natural world–“not a place one goes to, but rather a place one is already a part of – that We Are Nature.

Participant Submissions

Duncan Murphy, Stone Trust board member and proprietor of Fox Hill Landscapes, LLC in Dover, New Hampshire learned the basics of dry stone walling at a 2-Day Introduction to Dry Stone Walling in September 2020.

Last week he shared with us how he has used what he learned since then:

“A picture of my first pro stone wall project. I have a ways to go before I can consider myself a waller, but it was an amazing learning experience…said another way don’t zoom in too close :-). We did the wall and the fire pit area back left.”
