Spring Workshops Are Underway!

The Stone Trust’s 2020 workshop season begins today with a Contractors 1-Day Introduction to Dry Stone Walling at Stoneyard in Littleton, MA. Thirteen landscape and hardscape professionals will learn and apply the five basics of dry stonewalling. This course offers a great way to add dry stone walling to your repertoire. A Yard and a Half Landscaping Cooperative, a worker-owned cooperative based in Waltham, MA, has sent a team of five. When your business is ready for this kind of professional development, please email us. If you’re ready now, we still have two spots available in our March 28 Dummerston class.

Next week eight people participate in our popular Contractors 5-Day Intensive . Arriving from as far afield as California, Arkansas, and Maryland, as well as from much closer to home, students will prepare for a Level 1 Certification test to be held on Friday. Participants in addition to hardscape professionals, participants include a landscape architect and a retired geologist gathering knowledge and skills to implement a big project. Master Craftsman Jared Flynn, certified DSWA-GB Instructor/Examiner will oversee the test.

We are aware that the five-day intensive format suits many people’s needs and intend to schedule several additional courses for the late fall and winter of 2020-21. Our next 5-Day takes place from December 7 through 11, again at Stoneyard–8 spots. They fill up fast!
