Scything is becoming popular again as it is good for biodiversity. 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, grassy verges, nettles 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 £35 for the day. Places are limited.
Course will be held at Rosamund Community Garden, Longdown Road, Guildford, GU4 8PP on 1st October, 9.30 for a 10am start, finishing around 3.30pm. You will learn to scythe in our orchard and meadow. Bring a packed lunch; tea and coffee will be provided.
