Training in the use, maintenance and joy of the Austrian Scythe


The scythe is a highly efficient tool and is regarded as the appropriate technology for a wide variety of situations, much wider than many would think, from meadows and reedbeds to allotments and lawns, in professional and amateur contexts. In addition to its efficiency, versatility, outstanding green credentials and the health benefits for both body and mind, the scythe is an extremely cost effective tool. Once set up with basic kit no further outlay is required, and maintenance is simple and enjoyable.

Nicole Clough provides training in the use, maintenance and joy of the Austrian scythe. She runs one day courses within Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties, and can also offer tailor made sessions. More details are on the Courses page.
