Your chance to learn scything skills on our two-day course
Gardeners, smallholders, farmers or anyone keen to just ‘have a go’ are invited to sign up for a special ‘Learn to Mow’ course being run by the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership in July.
The two-day course, part of the AONB Partnership’s new project – Nectarworks, will be held on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th July at Low Way Farm, near Holwick in Upper Teesdale.
Manage your patch in peace
Course leader and scything expert, Steve Tomlin, said: “Anyone interested in discovering the pleasure of working with a scythe for managing their garden, allotment, orchard or meadow is welcome to come along. After learning and practising the techniques and skills of scything on the course, you’ll be able to put the strimmer in the shed forever and enjoy your mowing in peace!”
Participants on the course will be able to enjoy a stay on the farm (www.lowwayfarm.co.uk) and delicious farmhouse cooking to help keep their strength up.
The course takes place on Friday 26th – Saturday 27th July and costs between £60-£90, inclusive of tuition and meals.
Anyone interested in booking a place on the course should contact Rebecca Barrett at the North Pennines AONB Partnership on 01388 528801 or email: email@example.com
