This workshop is filled, but stay tuned for more workshop opportunities around Vermont!
Saturday September 7th, 2019
Workshop will be held rain or shine. All materials and tools provided. This event is FREE and open to the public. Participants will have the opportunity to construct a Leopold Bench like the one shown in the photo above and can bring their bench home to enjoy after the workshop.
Aldo Leopold has inspired generations with his writings about conservation and the natural world. In this hands-on program, you will build your own bench based on the unique design used by the Leopold family (perhaps adding your own creative touches!), using locally harvested wood from the Groton State Forest. We will finish with a short discussion about Leopold’s land ethic. Workshop includes all materials, tools and instruction; no woodworking experience required! All materials will be provided, but registration is required.
