Learn to Scythe course in Staffordshire

I’ve just spent two days teaching a beginners scythe course for the Groundworks volunteers at Silverdale Country Park in Staffordshire. The site has several mini wildflower meadows which are managed by scything and make a perfect venue for the training.

During the days, the participants really had chance to perfect their mowing technique as well as learning how to peen the scythe blade for optimum sharpness. If your volunteer group would like to start using scythes, email me stevetomlin8[at]gmailcom for details.
