Speaker: Jo Hodgson

Specializing in drystone construction and restoration for both private gardens and public spaces, Jo is a professional drystone waller from the U.K. who moved to Canada in 2003 and established her own company, ‘Stonescapes’, now based in Ottawa area.

Ever wondered how those stone walls surrounding gardens and fields got there, let alone survived for up to hundreds of years?

Jo will give a brief history of the development of drystone walling and take us on a virtual visual tour of some of her local projects as well as some in the U.K., U.S.A. and Nunavut.
