UpcomingSpring Volunteer Day April 26,2019

  • Spring Volunteer Day
    April 26, 2019
    8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Mark your calendars for our annual spring volunteer day at Scott Farm!  This year  it will be Friday April 26th 8am to 4pm.  We have lots of activities that need help to get ready for this years workshop season!  We will be setting up for the flagging workshop and stairs workshop.  Moving and sorting some stone, and setting up for our spring walling day, and much more.

For the 3rd year in a row the footbridge going to Master Feature Park needs repairs as well, so we will be helping Scott Farm staff get that done as well.

Volunteer days are a great way to network and spend time with fellow and more experienced wallers.   Master Craftsmen Jared Flynn and Brian Post will be there leading the way along with other Stone Trust Professional Members.

A basic lunch will be provided for volunteers.  We will be there 8 to 4ish, but feel free to come later or leave earlier if you need.

Everyone is welcome to attend.  Wear work clothes and boots and be ready for some fun doing stone work and related activities.   For tools to bring:  stone shaping tools, rake, shovel, and wheelbarrow are all generally useful.  For the bridge work a few people with some basic carpentry experience and tools would be a huge help!

Please RSVP by emailing [email protected] so we know how many volunteers we have coming (and how BIG to make the volunteer projects).

Every year it has been great fun! Whether snowing, raining or sunny we have a good time and get a lot done.  We look forward to seeing you there.
