This spring, the Trail Conference will be offering two freestanding dry stone wall workshops at our headquarters in Mahwah, N.J. The purpose of these workshops is to expose the art and craft of dry stone walling to the larger Trail Conference community and our partners, as well as to construct a dry stone wall along the front of our new HQ at the historic Darlington Schoolhouse.
These two-day workshops will take place at Trail Conference headquarters April 15-17 and May 28-30. The third day of each course is optional to learn about worksite prep and management. All skill levels are invited to participate.
Our dry stone wall workshops are a partnership between the Trail Conference and The Stone Trust from Dummerston, Vt. The Stone Trust advocates for the preservation of existing dry stone walls and promotes using the correct structural standards for the construction and restoration of dry stone walls.
