I was very excited to be teaching my latest Learn to Scythe course as the venue was Hullard Park in Trafford, Manchester just 10 minutes from my new home.
Lots of people have asked why I moved to the city and assume that it’s all concrete but there are actually lots of green spaces around and brilliant communities of actively engaged people looking after them.
The wildflower meadow at Hullard Park has been a bit neglected for the last couple of years so it was tangled in places but with loads of plant species in there I’m confident that it will soon become a beautiful meadow. I’ll be getting involved as a volunteer as well as teaching people how to scythe and hopefully we’ll start to make hay from the meadow in the future
Many thanks to Polly for organising the day and everyone who attended.
A comprehensive and practical guide to working with an Austrian scythe. Perfect if you cannot attend a course or as a reference guide following tuition.
