Community Programmes

Projects

We are a registered Scottish Charity, and our aim is to promote the craft of Drystone walling in our community. We do this by developing partnerships with community organisations. We design and build dry stone features which will enhance the community environment, and provide a showcase for dry stone walling. Project proposals and ideas are welcomed which fit with these aims, and can be put forward to the branch committee at any time.

These are some of our recent branch activities.

 

We created a Bee Bole in the Glasgow Botanical Gardens - to be maintained by local children, encouraging and stimulating interest in environmental matters.

 

We built quite a few walls and retaining walls in Kilbarchan.

 

We helped clear and rebuild some historical sites at Auchindrain Museum near Inveraray.

 

And of course we built and manned a build at our usual site at Gardening Scotland. This included an interesting laminar flow which demonstarted 'conditioned' water.
