Come learn how to use the Austrian scythe. Demonstrations include hay mowing, cutting hillsides, ditches and under fences, small farm hay management, creating a cutting edge with hammer and peening anvil and maintaining the edge using a whetstone. Mow an area and see how to manage the cut grass with a collection of hand tools. Plenty of hands-on instruction and practice. Learn correct movement for mowing and how to adjust the scythe to your body. Bring your scythe to class if you have one and have it evaluated for fit and sharpness. Scythes will be provided to try and buy. Discussion of different scythes will also be part of the class. Note: Class starts earlier than usual, at 8 am.
