Help Support The Stone Trust

Your support helps advance a craft rooted in millennia of tradition. Since 2010 the Stone Trust has offered training that helps you preserve the stone work that is part of our shared cultural heritage. What you learn from Stone Trust waller-teachers allows you to build ecological resilience into the landscape. When you apply what you learn professionally and when you purchase professional services, you generate livelihoods that support the communities where you live.

In 2021, the Stone Trust extended training to four new training sites, in Minnesota, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. As in Vermont, training in this classic construction method encourages economic growth through job training and low-impact tourism. With your help, the Stone Trust can fund travel for waller-teachers to help build the walling community near you.

In 2021, twenty-four waller teachers traveled to ensure that the highest-quality instruction was available to you. Many of them donate their travel expenses. Many cannot. Travel adds $250 to $1000 to each instructor day. The Stone Trust is committed to keeping workshops as affordable as possible. Please help fund travel expenses, while we build a community of waller-teachers near you.


Financial contributions go a long way to support the preservation and construction of dry stone walls as well as the art the craft of walling, both nationally and internationally.

Every dollar really can make a difference.

Your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  In response to your gift, you will receive an acknowledgment to use for tax return purposes.
