Pre-planning your funeral is a thoughtful and responsible way to show you care about your family.
Funerals are no easy task. There are numerous considerations to factor in, including logistics, food and drink, casket purchase and burial grounds. A loved one’s death brings immense emotional strain to any family, and the question of financing and arrangements only exacerbates the stress.

Purchasing a funeral plan with Golden Leaves enables you to plan, design and pay for your funeral services in advance.

Halting Erosion using Vetiver
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment depending on the current travel restrictions. Please email or call first. We have Moringa seedlings, Organic Moringa powder and Comfrey plants. We also have some local trees and some exotic trees from Africa.
Vetiver is a rapid growing and non-invasive sterile clump grass with a height of 1-2 metres and a root system of 3-4 metres in depth. We have been providing Vetiver throughout the EU for almost 10 years now. We are located in Sayalonga where we can plant year round but our best results by far start in February. The reason is that Vetiver is indigenous to India and Vetiver loves the heat of the summer. Use Vetiver cuttings as mulch around all of your fruit trees. Decomposing Vetiver improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away all while helping to maintain soil moisture.
Vetiver is a nutritious and replenishable animal fodder. Horses and pigs love it. We use it in our chicken pens replacing hay because it stops mites.
In the 2 photos below you will see land prepared for Vetiver and the results 2 years later.
We also use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive ornamental hedge.
Here is a link to a short video showing the results.
We suggest planting now, as this is the BEST time of the year to plant.
To see more images of Vetiver go to this link.
Presently we have some specials, which include free shipping to numerous locations.
For more information please contact us.

Recommendations & Requests


Fakebook Log-in Problems: {by Editor} Many readers are reporting they cannot sign into Facebook using a web browser, including myself. The FB mobile device apps do not appear to have this problem. As far as I have figured out, it has to do with the new anti-tracking & anti-cookie features that have recently been added to browsers like Chrome, Firefox, etc. As to why it happens to some people and not others, I am still investigating. 
The data of yours that FB sells to advertisers is worth 10x as much if it has your location included. Tracker blockers prevent FB from collecting your location. Cookie blockers prevent FB from collecting lists of websites you visit and searches you do. Evidently, if you won’t let FB have your location and lists of every website/search you visit, they are not interested in giving you access. Note, if you are using a mobile device FB app, then they already know your location. That is why the app is not having this problem. 
FB support has been useless in helping fix this.
My solution was to install a web browser without the anti-tracking features. I am now forced to use Pale Moon web browser to access FB. It is a slow browser, but it works with FB. See Pale Moon here: http://www.palemoon.org/

Andalusia adds 88 hospitalised in a single day due to Covid, although the number of deaths remains at a low level: {Translation} Updated: 13/07/2021, 17:07
-Andalusia has added 88 new Covid hospitalisations in 24 hours, raising the number of patients admitted from 545 yesterday to 633 on Tuesday, 122 of them in the ICU. This is the biggest rise since last February in a single day and highlights that the fifth wave, although less severe for now in the pressure of care, also has an effect on patients in need of medical care after contracting the coronavirus.
-In addition, the community remains this Tuesday for the second consecutive day in the vicinity of 3,000 infections. It has recorded 2,906 cases, which has raised the incidence rate to almost 300 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants on 14 days, almost double what the community had only a month ago.
-The one-week incidence rate has not improved either. In fact, it has risen to 161 points, which augurs a few days ahead where the pandemic, far from diminishing, is expected to grow.
-Where there is still no reflection of the growth of the fifth wave is in the number of deaths. There are 5 this Tuesday, so that Andalusia has spent 14 days below ten deaths per day. In total, 10,248 people have died in the region since the start of the health crisis.

Spain set to authorise the sale of coronavirus self-diagnosis tests without the need for a medical prescription: The authorisation for the sale in pharmacies will be for an “in vitro diagnostic” test, and it comes after a favourable report was presented last Friday and saw no basis to prevent the commercialisation of these products, which are already distributed in many European countries.
The decree will allow these tests to be advertised, so it is likely that in a matter of days they will appear on television screens across the country. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/national/202107/13/spain-authorise-sale-coronavirus-20210713183000.html 


What are self-diagnostic Covid-19 tests and how reliable are they?: {Translation}
-The government will authorise the sale in pharmacies (without prescription) of self-diagnostic antigen tests, which are used to easily detect covid with the aim of more quickly locating new positive cases in view of the increase in incidence in recent weeks.
-According to the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS), the test should be performed during the first five days after the onset of symptoms, when the viral load is very high and, therefore, the virus is better detected.
-The AEMPS recommends the use of self-testing tests that have a specificity of 97% and a sensitivity of 90%, and the test must be labelled with the CE marking followed by the four-digit number of the notified body that assessed it.
-During the first seven days of infection or within five days of onset of symptoms. This is when the viral load is at its highest and most detectable.
-These tests are sold exclusively in pharmacies.
-The manufacturer’s directions and instructions for use must be followed carefully to ensure that the test is carried out properly. The test may be affected if the indicated procedure has not been followed.
-If the test result is positive, the test (T) and control (C) lines will be marked. If the result is negative, only the control line (C) will be marked. The test must have the control line (C) clearly visible. If it does not appear, the test is defective and therefore invalid.
-If the test is positive, regardless of whether the patient has symptoms or not, isolation must be started immediately and the health services of the autonomous community where the patient is located must be contacted.
-If the result is negative, i.e. only the control line (C) remains visible in the test, the patient should not rule out the disease. This negative result may mean that the viral load is too low to be detected.
-In this case, the AEMPS recommends isolation and contacting the health services of your autonomous community. Source, Spanish: https://www.cope.es/actualidad/sociedad/noticias/que-son-cuanta-fiabilidad-tienen-los-test-autodiagnostico-20210713_1399688
