DSC logo transparent


Dry Stone Canada is very pleased to announce that we are having our first workshop in the City of Toronto.

Ravina Gardens Park is located north of High Park, in The Junction, and has a community garden on site. The community has arranged to have a wall built to support the new pollinator garden they plan to install.

This wall will have a slight curve to it and will be built using quarried stone. This is an excellent opportunity to learn the basics of dry stone wall building along with incorporating stone into a garden design.

This two-day workshop is suitable for beginners. No tools are required. Lunch and snacks are included.

Workshops include a maximum of 12 registered participants.

Fee: $200.00
