For the good and profit of all.

St. Christopher House is a neighbourhood support centre at Ossington and Dundas in the west end of Toronto. The volunteers work with diverse individuals, families and groups to promote personal and social change in order to achieve a safe, healthy and accepting society for all. Some of us at Dry Stone Walling Across Canada were honoured to be able to come and help rebuild the walls in the garden courtyard this weekend. 

Thanks to Kathy,Beverly,Sean,Kate and all the people at St Christopher's for accommodating the volunteer workers Bill, Brent, Caesar, Judy, Shelagh, Jeffery and Richard who came to learn the craft of dry stone walling, as well as make a valuable aesthetic contribution to the premises of this care-giving organization. Thanks too to DSWAC members Fraser Sinclair and Evan Oxland who gave up their weekend and helped with the rebuilding of the cloister walls.

Bill Cheng is understandably very proud of the section of garden wall he and Jeffery helped rebuild.
