at the Tuck Museum.
Gardnerís presentation, Discovering New England Stone Walls
, will take place following a short annual meeting at 6:30 p.m.
The program is offered through New Hampshire Humanities
While building a tabletop stone wall, Gardner will explain how and why New England came to have thousands of miles of stone walls, the ways in which they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time, and their significance to the New England landscape.
Gardner is a writer, teacher, tradesman, and a lifelong resident of Hopkinton, NH. He has been a stone wall builder for 40 years, and is the author of The Granite Kiss: Traditions and Techniques of Building New England Stone Walls
, one of the select, definitive books about building stone walls in New England.
