Learn to scythe course 2016If you’re not already aware, the Austrian scythe is the ideal way to manage your land, whether it’s a meadow, orchard, allotment or garden. The scythe will cut and control grass, nettles, brambles, bracken, rushes, thistles and a whole lot more besides. It is quiet, relaxing, sustainable and fun – the students on my courses have to be forced to stop mowing at the end of the day!

Learn to Scythe course 2016My one-day Learn to Scythe course is a fully comprehensive training day for beginners or improvers. Scythe kits are provided which are also available to but on the day. During the course you will learn:

  • setting up the scythe to fit your body
  • ergonomic mowing technique
  • sharpening in the field
  • peening the edge
  • care and maintenance of your scythe.

I have been teaching since 2010 and have almost 15 years of mowing experience which combine to give you expert tuition in a fun, relaxed and safe atmosphere. Take a look at my blog to read about previous Learn to Scythe courses.

These dates have already begun to book to subscribers of my newsletter so if you would like to learn to scythe, don’t delay.
