A two day course covering all you need to know on how to set up, use and maintain a scythe, enabling you to efficiently mow your garden, allotment, orchard or meadow. The focus is on practical skills. Once you’ve learned how to set up your scythe, we’ll go straight out to the meadow to begin mowing. Scythes, wetstones and peening equipment will be provided. You will need to bring a rake, a fork, appropriate clothing and footwear for working outdoors and packed lunches for both days (tea, coffee and water will be provided). You will need to be reasonably fit. Please let us know of any medical conditions you have and don’t forget to bring your medication with you.
