Learn to Scythe with Clive!

24 September 2021 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


Scything is making a comeback! Scythes have been used since Roman times for cutting vegetation at ground level, and today a modern scythe is surprisingly effective for mowing small meadows, weeds such as nettles, grassy verges, and even lawns. 

The ‘Introduction to Austrian Scything’ course includes the following:

– How to set up the scythe

– Choice of blades for your own application

– Sharpening (and health and safety)

– Technique and stance

– Personal troubleshooting and observation

Bring your own scythe if you have one or use one of ours if you haven’t.

This course is being run at the discounted rate of £45 for the day. Places are limited.

Course will be held at Rosamund Community Garden, 24th September.

To book make a payment of £45 to the Guildford Environmental Forum. Sort code: 30-93-74  Account number: 00533088
