Details

Have a go at scything, the traditional way to cut grass rather than using mowers and strimmers. Not only that, it’s a great way to keep fit! Our expert scythers will be cutting the meadow in our orchard. Richard from Emorsgate Seeds will be on hand to explain why this ancient art is important and how you can create a wildflower meadow from scratch.
