13 Jul 4:01am Putting pigs in the shade: the radical farming system banking on trees | John Vidal
The Guardian
A farm in Portugal is showing how the ancient art of silvopasture – combining livestock with productive trees – may offer some real answers to the climate crisis The land to the north of the village of Foros de Vale Figueira in southern Portugal has been owned and farmed through the centuries by Romans, Moors, Christians, capitalists, far rightists, even the military. It has been part of a private fiefdom, worked by slaves as well as communists. Now this 100-hectare (247-acre) patch of land just looks exhausted – a great empty grassland without trees, people or animals, wilting under a baking Iberian sun.

13 Jul 2:01am Park homes: cheaper than bricks and mortar, but not trouble free
The Guardian
Loved by pensioners, mobile housing is also fraught with rogues who prey on residents Downsizing to a park home sounds like the ideal move for cash-strapped pensioners. Retirees can swap urban life for a quieter one in the countryside or by the sea, surrounded by people in the same age group. Park homes are much cheaper than traditional bricks and mortar – you can buy one for less than £100,000 in most areas of the country. However, the UK park home industry has a reputation for being run by “distinctly shady characters with considerable powers”, as Sebastian O’Kelly, founder of the

13 Jul 2:00am Work and play: the rise of child-friendly co-working spaces
The Guardian
Fed up with escalating childcare costs and inflexible nurseries? A new breed of workplaces can help When Zoey Goto drops her two-year-old daughter off at nursery in the morning, she has an enviable commute to work. For freelance journalist Goto is at her desk and opening up her laptop in under two minutes. The reason? Goto, 39, works from central London-based Cuckooz Nest, which doubles up as a co-working space and a creche, offering 36 desks for the adults and a nursery capacity of 18. Stocked up with toys and books and featuring a dress-up section and a breastfeeding room, Cuckooz Nest, located in Clerkenwell, opened in 2018 and allows parents to book desk space and qualified childcare on a flexible pay-as-you-go basis starting from £14 an hour, or £12 per hour as part of a monthly membership with a minimum commitment of eight hours a week.
