  • Working with Comfort Block adhesive
  • Installing rebar
  • Weatherproofing and finishing
  • And more!

MELNA, the Maine Landscape & Nursery Association, is happy to host Comfort Block for a day of hands-on education. By involving a handful of students in this project, we aim to inspire them to consider a career path in the trades. With industries constantly seeking skilled employees, let’s encourage students to explore professions in hardscaping, masonry, and landscaping.

Come for an hour or the entire day! This event is open to all who are interested in learning and getting involved.

To help give us an idea of how many participants we should expect, please RSVP below if you know for certain you’ll be attending. If you have any questions about the event, please call Katey at (207) 756-5553.

This event will be held in the garden area behind the school. Please park in the stadium field parking area (see map).
