  • After approximately a year (during which period we’ve taken on-and-off shots at a fundamental re-design) we are relieved to finally present the new version of ScytheConnection. Still, we have to humbly report that had it not been for the devilishly patient help of a Tasmanian who calls himself “mr.office” with the technicalities of website design, it would not be here yet… (Thanks mate!) The contents is still a work in process; but of course, it always was just that. A portion of our previous site’s material has not been ‘completely’ reorganized, much of it not yet revised or updated (as learning on any subject ought to be) and some stuff has not been moved over from the old site to new. However, there are already several hundred pages here — of both user’s guidelines and related food for thought of depth not presented ‘under one roof’ anywhere else.

Due to something of an “internal crisis” this website has been more or less on low speed auto-pilot for well over a year. Late as it may now be (in view of what is still ‘realistically possible’) we begin to catch up…. slowly.

      But before adding the imminently practical content, we wish to:
    • a) Publicly acknowledge the scythe passion and accomplishments of Niels Johannsen from Denmark — and nominate him as the “Mower of the Decade“.

    • b) Congratulate Alexander Vido of ScytheWorks for the necessary perseverance to implement his years-long vision: to bring the gift of the scythe to people he believes need it ~ Scythe Project in Nepal
