Join scything expert Clive Leeke for this one day practical scything course on the Earth Trust Farm.
Scything is a great environmentally friendly alternative to power tools and can be used to mow hay meadows, clear nettles or brambles and reedbeds. On this course you will learn how to work with and maintain an Austrian Scythe.
This hands-on one day course is perfect for anyone new to scything or those who wish to gain more experience.
The group will spend the full day out on the nature reserve, undertaking this physical activity. Please bring a packed lunch, and wear clothing suitable for working outdoors. Scythes will be provided.
There is a discount for registered Earth Trust volunteers.
