About the Event
Run By: Rosamund Community Garden & Guildford Environmental Forum
Scything is a FAR more environmentally friendly way to keep your grass and garden in check than a mower, causing minimal disruption to the minibeasts hiding in your law, resulting in less need for herbicides, and lowering both fossil fuel use and embedded manufacturing emissions of machinery. This 'Introduction To Austrian Scything' teaches you everything you need to know about scything, to setting up a scythe and maintaining it to proper technique, stance, and troubleshooting. It's BYOS (Bring Your Own Scythe!) but if you don't have a scythe you can borrow one on the day. This event has been held annually and is popular, and places are limited so book now!
