These workshops are suitable for organisations, groups and individuals who are interested in managing green spaces using scythes. I will cover blade management, scythe set up, health and safety, mowing practice and I will always try and tailor content to suit specific situations. I can take up to seven people per session. I am based in Fife but will travel throughout Scotland to run a workshop if possible.
