I’m really excited to be teaching a Learn to Scythe course at Hullard Park in south Manchester. This follows on from the course I taught there last year and will be helping with the management of the park’s fabulous wildflower meadow.
The scythe is a terrific tool for urban spaces, quiet, manoeuvrable and able to tackle weeds as well as grasses. It’s just the thing for an allotment, community orchard, meadow or even your lawn.
The course will cover all the aspects of scything, including setting up the scythe, sharpening the blade, mowing and maintenance.
