Jared Flynn grew up in Southern Vermont where the dry stone wall culture dates back to the early 1800’s. Flynn is a professional member of The Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain and has his Master Level certification. He also holds a Journeyman Certificate from the Dry Stone Conservancy of Kentucky. Together these organizations offer the highest level of Dry Stone Walling education available, providing clients with a known standard for quality work.
Flynn has been working in residential and commercial dry stone walling construction professionally for over 15 years. In that time , he has had the opportunity to collaboratively design and construct with engineers, architects, garden designers and home owners. He has a special skill for integrating stonework into the landscape.
In 2010, Flynn helped found The Stone Trust, a Vermont not-for-profit with the mission to preserve the art and craft of dry stone walling. Flynn’s work with Landmark Trust USA, the DSWA, and the Stone Trust provided the support needed to build “The Stone Trust Center” – a space open to the public year round that offers dry stone walling educational opportunities for all levels of interest.
As a trained DSWA certified instructor Flynn is Committed to the professional development of fellow wallers and Serves as the Stone Trust’s Test Site Coordinator which facilitates DSWA Certification test days for candidates and examiners and supporting pre-test candidates practicing for certification.
Flynn is grateful for the many years of opportunity he has had in the drystone walling community. Without the help and support of family, friends, and clients who put their trust in his work, many of Flynn’s accomplishments would not have been possible.
Flynn currently lives in Dummerston, Vermont with his wife and children.
