I was lucky enough to get a voucher for a RC course for my 40th and had been thinking about the fish course but have just read 2 really disappointing reviews after a number of glowing reviews. The poor reviews were posted earlier in April - can anyone else who'e been on a fish course at RC recently give any more feedback
I see River Cottage is hosting an Energy Share event. It's great to see you support community power generation, well done!
. I also see one of the big enery providers hosts the web site? Is this just a big energy provider looking for some good PR? What have they done to support renewable energy power generation, which is not already backed by public money? I hope they really mean to help scale up decentalised commuinty power generation and shake up the energy market! Lets see more Good Energy and Ecotricity in the UK - why not invite them along to Energy Share?
. I see that 50kW+ PV Feed-in Tariff is up for review. 50kw is about the same as 20 homes fitting PV panels! How can anyone call that large scale! why is this up for review?
Commenting on DECC’s announcement of a review of feed-in tariffs for solar projects above 50kWp, Peter Madden, CEO of sustainability NGO Forum for the Future, said:
“This unexpected review threatens investor confidence in all small-scale renewable energy and may well jeopardise a range of community projects. The timing of all this couldn’t be worse as many communities, hospitals, town halls and farms have solar roof-mounted projects in the pipeline and innovative ways of financing projects locally were about to take off.
“By removing the certainty that the solar feed-in tariffs provided, government risks creating market uncertainty about feed-in tariffs more generally and slowing the uptake of low-carbon technologies. “
OVESCo and other community groups oppose the review of the Feed-in Tariff.

Hi. I've been having this debate with older generation farmers in our village about the do's and dont's of pig feeding. Now we all know you cannot feed pigs anything that comes via the kitchen due to contamination but they're insisting if I boiled peelings I'd be able to feed them to my pigs. (Not that I want to nor would I have the time to stand and boil up my peelings!) I keep telling them they're wrong and that boiling them up would be illegal too. Who's right?
