Help Support The Stone Trust

Through your generous support a craft rooted in millennia of tradition continues to spread throughout North America. Since 2010 the Stone Trust has offered training in the art and craft of dry stone walling in order to preserve and advance the calling.

You come to the Stone Trust to engage with waller-teachers, professional dry stone wallers steeped in the craft. You come to experience the ethos they perpetuate– to honor the craft, to value the stone we use to execute it, and to hold in regard all creatures in the locales where our projects take shape.

2022 was a year of incredible growth for the Stone Trust. With your generous support, each Stone Trust training site added teaching and test walls. Each offered you increased learning opportunities. With your participation, the Stone Trust walling community continues to grow. Thank you!

As we move into 2023, you can expect continued efforts to make training in dry stone walling easily accessible. Your generous donation helps ensure that both walling and teaching expertise inform every interaction. With your gift you help safeguard the attitude of respect for the craft and for each member of our growing walling community.

A tradition endures because people like you learn what’s necessary to carry it on. Learn by doing—in workshops and community projects. Advance your skill through certification testing. Find mentors and get jobs. Access guidance for historic preservation projects or customized training for your workforce. Above all, help infuse a deep understanding of the art and craft of dry stone walling into every communication. Please give to the Annual Fund.


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.
