Old Trafford scything workshop 2019

Learn to scythe workshop in Manchester

It was National Meadow Day today and I had a fantastic day teaching a group how to scythe at Hullard Park in Old Trafford, Manchester. The park has a fabulous wildflower meadow which is in need of some cutting so this workshop was organised to train local people in scything.

There was a great atmosphere all day as people made new connections as well as learning the skills of scything and getting involved in the meadow management. Courses like this are perfect for building community networks and as important for that as for all the work which got done.

If you’re in the area on Sunday 7th July, I’ll be back in the meadow as part of Old Trafford Open Gardens – come along to find out about scything, meadow management and Hullard Park.

    I attended this workshop, absolutely brilliant day. If you get the chance to take part in one of Steve’s workshop do so, real quality tuition from a lovely guy, and in this instance set in a beautiful setting in Hullard Park , Old Trafford, along with great hospitality from friends of the park including glorious homemade cake.

What do you think? It's good to talk.
