Summary: 

The scythe has been used in parts of the world since Roman Times. It is still being used in many countries today and is having a revival in Britain.

Join us on a day exploring how to use this fantastic tool.

The day will cover: how to set up the scythe, selecting the right blade for the job, altering the angle of the blade, how to sharpen the blade and, most importantly - how to mow with ease and flow!
Later in the day we will cover how to repair blades and have a go at 'Peening' the blade with the Peening jig.

Austrian scythes will be available to use but if you have your own feel free to bring it along.

Lunch will be vegetarian/vegan from organic produce grown at karuna.
Camping available by arrangement- £6 per night, per person.

Andrea Gilpin has been teaching scything whilst working for a conservation charity for over 10 years. 'In all the community spaces we work in we never use strimmers. We always use scythes - not for nostalgic reasons but purely practical - they produce no pollution, vibration or noise. They are enjoyable and sociable to use and a good scyther can scythe quicker than a strimmer - what more reason do we need to pick up a scythe when a job needs to be done!'
