Learn to Scythe with Clive!
September 24 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm£45.00
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
