The Building of a Dry Stone House
May 11 & 12, 2013

Brian Fairfield, Matt Carter and Andrew Pighills will visit Blackrock to conduct a dry stone walling workshop.  Over the course of this two day class participants will work with these highly accredited craftsmen in the construction of a small stone building.  From the foundation up, including windows and doorways, the class will build the walls of this structure.  Later, a green roof will be installed (this may be another workshop as well, depending on the enthusiasm).  Call or e-mail to secure a spot.  This is an advanced stone walling workshop, so we ask that participants have experience working with stone.  However, spectators are encouraged to come watch, learn and ask questions.

Participants: 300.00
Spectators: 20.00 (under 16 free)    

 


The Blackrock Farm Open House 
May 18, 2013

While this isn't really a focused workshop it is the biggest day of the year for our nursery.  The Blackrock staff will be on hand to help answer questions, there will be a few large, big ticket trees for sale and the farm will be looking its best.

 It's the perfect day to visit Kennebunkport's nursery.
