The scything course will involve why grasslands are mown, an introduction to scything, setting up the scythe correctly and the different types of blades available, scything technique, scything itself and sharpening the blades. We look at the site and the different grassland types and if sunny see butterflies utilising the managed grasslands. It's easier than you think and a good workout for the waist!
