We're kicking off an occasional column on garden office and garden room showrooms with a look at Green Retreat' s offering at Westcott Venture Park between Bicester and Aylesbury, which they describe as the UK's largest indoor garden room showroom. It has been up and running since March last year and includes a range of fully finished garden room spaces including garden offices, gyms and social spaces. Free tea and coffee on arrival if you mention Shedworking (though to be honest, free tea and coffee on arrival even if you don't) and £200 off your order following a visit, even if you don't place it during your visit which is a nice touch. Among the company's new models is The Annex which they describe as a "turn-key solution for those looking to easily add extra living space to their home that offers more privacy". It features living space, a bathroom, kitchen and bedroom.   ------------------------------------------------------- Friday posts are sponsored by Warwick Buildings , manufacturers of outstanding quality timber buildings.

Not all food is created equal, and not all foods are healthy for the planet. You’ve seen the headlines. Manufacturing plants suck up water, pollute with chemicals and damage the surrounding landscape. Raising cattle and other livestock is also associated with earth-damaging consequences. Most environmentalists agree that plant-based products offer the best balance of nutrition and environmental balance. Earth Day is right around the corner so it’s the perfect time to focus on foods that show...

A 60-year study on plankton has revealed the dark truth about the history of ocean plastic waste. The study shows how plastics have been polluting our oceans since at least the 1950s and that the problem has steadily gotten worse in the six decades since. The first documented case of ocean plastic waste was some fishing twine discovered in the 1950s. The next mention is a carrier bag in 1965. From there, the data shows that plastic waste significantly increased between 1970 and the early 2000s,...
