About the Event
After careers in the military, healthcare and higher education sectors, Jeff Green hung up his suit and tie and took up drystone walling. Now in his sixth year as a professional, Jeff invites you to a lunchtime talk where he explores the history and practice of this ancient craft. Discover the pros and cons of exchanging the office for a life working outdoors. This talk is for anybody who wishes to learn more about drystone walling, particularly those considering a career change to rural employment.
