    6-Week Traditional Hand-Mowing Intensive: Laboring toward Learning

    From the Brush Brook website event description: “Do you long to move in a common rhythm with the Life that unfolds and unfurls around you? Have you ever wondered what might happen if we stopped hurtling forward long enough to turn around and inquire as to how things came to be as they are?”

    As a graduate, you will be invited to join Brush Brook for an historic haymaking effort in June – to mow the eight acres of meadow that surround the new Cow Barn.
    The team has ordered a small fleet of traditional scythes – hand-forged Austrian blades attached to steam-bent Ash handles, and has 18 spots available. Instructors: We’ve gathered a remarkable group of Teachers from the local community for this first class of the Scythe School. Teaching Topics will range from Songs to Steel to Snaths to Sore Shoulders.
