July 8 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Scything: Make a Scythe & Learn to Mow

Instructor: Jeromy Biazzo, Wolftree Farm, skilled scythe maker and mower, and co-owner of Wolftree Farm

Students will make a simple one handed snath (handle) to fit a blade they bring or purchase from Groundswell. Snath design and assembly will be made simpler so that more time can be applied to mowing. Ring clasps will be purchased and handles will be attached with a hanger bolt.

Course Fee: $50
Materials Fee: $90
Total: $140
Materials needed: Scythe blade, ring clasps, whetstone, whetstone holder. If you plan to bring all of these items we will waive the Materials fee. (Pay just the Course Fee)

If you want to purchase tools independently, they can be bought from Scytheworks.ca, www.lehmans.com or onescytherevolution.com, howlandtools.com, or scythesupply.com.

*Please note that registration for this event is closed UNLESS you already have the materials needed. If you’d like to attend the course, with your own materials please contact kate@groundswellcenter.org.
