Does anyone know of a place in Southwest Missouri where I could go and just be able to try to use a scythe? I'd really like to give it a go a couple times before I just go out and buy one.

Hey Skip,
This is funny but you get your Poultry CSA share from me!  I've got a Marugg scythe that you'd be more than welcome to take for a test spin.  There's not much to cut right now besides some broomsedge, but that ought to at least give you an idea of the mechanics and whatnot.  I typically cut hay in early May, if you'd rather wait for that.

Totally awesome that you are here on Permies! OMG, I actually have met someone from here in person! I would love to do that. It's a bit too cold and rainy for me today and I know you must be busy with your family for the holiday or I'd ask to come over this weekend. I always have Sunday off of work if that works for you? 
 
And now I present magical permaculture hypno cards. The idea is to give them to people that think all your permaculture babble is crazy talk. And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom. If only there were some sort of consumer based event coming where you could have an excuse to slip them a deck ... richsoil.com/cards
