My daughter and son in law have taught their Air Cadets to built traps for the American cray fish which abound in the Kennet and Avon Canal as part of a survival weekend. They worked very well and the cadets and us had a good meal from them. They used willow to weave the baskets. they've also given them gutted rabbits to cook and eat before now.

We are building an outdoor wood fired cooking area from mainly cob with a pole framed green roof at our farm. We'll use it mainly in the summer to keep cooking heat out of the house.
