The Lost Art of the Scythe


Posted on : 4:26 PM | By : Anonymous | In : , ,

This lovely video is of a 14-year-old girl artfully cutting circles around a tractor is available thanks to the Cooperative Scythe Network.  The sole purpose of that prestigious information organization is to teach people how to use this ancient tool, and to continue its use.  The website is incredibly informative and you will find everything you ever wanted to know about purchasing and caring for a scythe.  Although they are Canadian, they offer help all over the world, and also sell quality scythes and snaths to everyone.   In fact, they believe that peak oil will make this scene a reality everywhere.

One thing that I loved about this video is that my sister and I looked a lot like that when we were her age... long braids, barefoot and skirts and all. :)
