What's old is new again
Nash’s Farm Store welcomes Alexander Vido of Victoria, British Columbia, for a free workshop about scythes. Learn about this human-powered tool and how it provides independence from petroleum-powered ones.
Using a scythe is ecologically responsible; it preserves a time-honored skill; and it provides the ability to harvest grain and livestock feed on a small scale. Scything also is an enjoyable outdoors experience and healthy aerobic exercise!
In addition to demonstrating how to use a scythe, Vido will show a 10-minute video about the Scythe Project in Nepal (SPIN) and share more about his work with Nepalese farmers.
In partnership with the Himalayan Permaculture Centre, SPIN’s intent is to “present for evaluation by Nepalese farmers an ancient harvesting implement of many non-Oriental cultures — the scythe.” Compared to the currently used sickle, the scythe represents the next step in evolution of forage-cutting tools and is more practical/accessible for rural farmers than petroleum-powered tools.
