Sympathetic Scything

This is short film about the activity of scything.  Filmed over approximately and hour, the use of time lapse enables us to see the work taking place and the effectiveness of the scythe.  I'm often asked 'why use a scythe?'... because it's sympathetic to the plants around, clearing the overgrowth and allowing the important plants and flowers for pollinators to thrive.  The the action of scything is selective, great exercise and lets you spend lots time outdoors!
