Back by popular demand, Andrew Pighills, an accomplished stone artisan, gardener, and horticulturalist, will give a talk on old stone walls, accompanied by photographs of walls in and around Eastern Greenwich. He will draw comparisons of building styles and techniques, and follow the evolution of stone walls and structures from colonial times to the present day.
Mr. Pighills received his formal horticulture training with The Royal Horticultural Society. He has spent over 30 years creating gardens and building dry stone walls in his native England, in and around the spectacular Yorkshire Dales and the English Lake District.
