Dry Stone Walling

Collect and sort stone from the land, and help us build a retaining wall with a seat for the children’s fire pit area at our Farm campus!

This will be a hands-on practical day focusing on the principles of building a dry-stone wall.

In the morning session participants will work individually, preparing and building the first few courses of a practice wall. In the afternoon we will work as a group, building a retaining wall on the site.

Join us on Saturday 13th May for an Introductory session. You’re then invited back on Sunday 14th May alongside attendees of our previous Dry Stone Walling courses for FREE to finish the work you started! (You don’t have to attend the Sunday session if you are unavailable)
