Event Description

co-sponsored by Inspiration Farm and Transition Whatcom
Sell your weed wacker and pick up a scythe!
Learn the sharper points of this elegant tool. Scythes are thought to be old school, but sharper and lighter blades, and an ergonomic set up for your body makes them one of the most efficient tools out there. Learn what makes a good scythe, how to properly maintain and use it. Mow your lawn, trim around trees or fence line with ease. Maintain your body not your weed wacker or lawn mower.
Several different scythes will be available to try. If you have one, bring it along.
$30 - $60 sliding scale, Life Dollars accepted

Rob and all interested parties, don;t just spend your money on any old garage sale scythe. Come to this event and learn about different aspects of scythes and what to look for in a good one. I will have several different examples to show and will talk about the pros and cons of each.

Brian and all, This looks great! I will keep my eye out for a scythe. I am kicking myself for the scythes I walked by at garage sales during the last few years... 2 1/2 acres of grass that I have to rent a tractor for. Maybe some of it could be hand cut.
