An Introduction to Scything - Henfield 20/7/2019 Saturday, 20th July 2019 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Tutor: Mark Allery
The art of scything dates back hundreds of years and is still a very valid form of land management used today. This course is practically based and will cover the advantages of using scythes today, the range of work scythes can manage, scything safety, tool maintenance and of course, the practical techniques of setting up, learning to mow and sharpening the scythe. We will be scything in the meadows of Woods Mill nature reserve.
Mark has all the tools needed to teach on the day. He also sells equipment should you wish to continue scything in future.
