This episode is special, as we have paired it with a lengthy 2-part scything 101 collaborative substack piece.
We're joined by Benjamin Brownlow of Fox Holler Almanac & Farmstead to discuss the application of the scythe and basics around making this traditional tool more accessible for first-time users. What are the benefits of using a scythe, how can it change the trajectory of a landscape, and when is it not appropriate? Further, what exactly is a scythe, and how can your decisions around the scythe you use impact your success? We explore all of these questions and more in this episode.
Additionally, Fox Holler Farmstead is seeking apprentices for 2024 in cooperative land management, agroforestry, natural building, sustainable agriculture and gardening. Contact Ben at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
