Successful scything workshop at Beacon Park, Falmouth

On 8th September volunteers and members of the CORMAC landscape maintenance team attended a successful meadow scything workshop at Beacon Park Falmouth, led by specialists from Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

Scything is a traditional method of mowing, with many environmental benefits including being low carbon and reducing damage to soil structure compared to the use of mechanical mowers.

This event also demonstrated that getting together to scythe away is an enjoyable social activity - despite the weather!

Many thanks to Cornwall Wildlife Trust and to everyone that attended.

We hope to run future similar events in the future. To find out more, please do contact us at
