On saturday 9th june we’ll be at Sprint Mill near Kendal mowing one of the meadows which is due to be used for car parking during an event there at the end of the month. Rather than spoil the grass, Edward & Romola have asked if we’ll mow it and we thought it was a good chance to have a bit of a gathering of the northern scythe group.
This is a day of practise rather than tuition so you should already know how to mow if you want to join in though there’s always a good exchange of advice and tips to help you if you’re stuggling. Christiane and I will be there from about 9:30, earlier if the weather is sunny – if so, we’ll hopefully make hay and bale it up with our new baler.
Read the post of us group mowing this meadow last year.
You can just turn up or send me an email to let me know you’re coming. See you there.
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.
