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.
https://youtu.be/rjTmb_LL2uo
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.

COVID-19

NEW COVID RESTRICTIONS EXPLAINED- The Junta restores the curfew from 2am to 7am in the areas of Andalusia with the highest incidence: {Translation} Updated: 20/07/2021 20:38
-Andalusia will once again have a curfew in high incidence areas. This has been announced by the Andalusian government after the meeting of the group of experts advising it on the management of the pandemic. The timetable for night-time home confinement will be from two in the morning to seven in the morning. This would currently affect localities such as Conil, Tarifa and Marbella.
-However, the measure will only be for municipalities that exceed the incidence rate of more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and have more than 5,000 inhabitants.
-What about those with less than 5,000 inhabitants? “A specific evaluation will be carried out,” according to the Junta. The Executive of Juanma Moreno details that the measure must be ratified by the High Court of Justice of Andalusia (TSJA). (Has to be endorsed by the high Court of Justice of Andalusia in each case that are proposed by the Board)
-There is also a time limit in the case of beaches and parks. Thus, the Junta “urges” the municipalities to close both spaces from eleven at night to seven in the morning to avoid crowds and festivities that could be a focus of contagion. The measure is proposed for all municipalities that are not on level 1 alert and does not affect catering services.
-In addition, the Andalusian government has modified the capacity of bars, restaurants and nightlife venues. Thus, in the hotel and catering trade, there will only be a maximum of four people per table, up to ten, depending on the health alert level of the health area where the establishment is located. The Andalusian government adds that consumption at the bar will only be permitted at levels 1, 2 and 3.
*Discotheques and bars*
-In the case of nightclubs and bars, which can open until two in the morning, they must have a register of customers to control “the traceability of possible contagions”. The capacity in these premises will be a maximum of 75 per cent indoors in level 1 and 50 per cent in level 2.
-Consumption in these nightlife venues may only take place outdoors, not indoors. In addition, tables may not have more than four people at a table. “In the exteriors, bar service will only be allowed in levels 1, 2 and 3, with consumption at tables,” adds the note issued by the Junta.
-There are also new features for celebrations, which reduce the capacity to 75 per cent on level 1, “with a maximum of 200 people and four diners per table”. On level 2, the maximum permitted capacity will be 75 per cent with a maximum of 150 people. Bar service will also not be permitted indoors, while outside service will only be permitted on levels 1, 2 and 3, with consumption at the table, according to the Junta.
*Contagions among young people*
-The Junta de Andalucía indicates that the committee of experts has highlighted “the rapid rise in the accumulated incidence indicator, with special relevance in the young population”.
-The Regional Minister of Health, Jesús Aguirre, added that “the irruption of the new Delta variant in Andalusia, which has a greater capacity for transmission”, to which he added that, “although current vaccination coverage continues to rise, it cannot be ruled out that the greater number of cases may begin to influence the indicators of healthcare pressure”.
-The Minister wanted to point out that “the experts have proposed the recommendation that no parties, festivals, pilgrimages or other popular festive activities should be held while the current epidemiological situation continues, just as it is not recommended to hold meetings or private parties where more than 10 people gather”.

Gas bottle prices go up again in Spain: The price of the 12.5 kilo butane gas cylinder in Spain will increase by 4.99 per cent to 15.37 euros as of this Tuesday (20 July), the fifth consecutive rise and reaching its highest level since March 2015.
The price rise was confirmed in the BOE Official State Gazette, and the main blame has been put on the increase in the prices of raw materials (+ 12.91 per cent) and freight (+ 15.23 per cent), which were partially offset by the slight appreciation of the euro against the dollar (+ 1.32 per cent).
This latest increase is added to the previous four, also of almost 5 per cent in November 2020, January, March and May 2021. Since September of last year, the maximum price of the butane cylinder has risen by 26.5 per cent and the 15.37 euros price, as of this Tuesday, is the highest since March 2015, when it stood at 15.40 euros.

EUROPE

EU court declares employers can ban workers from wearing headscarves: The highest court in the EU has decided that private employers can ban workers from wearing any type of headscarf or religious symbols, under certain conditions.
As the EU court declares this right for employers, it reminded that this policy can only be implemented in order to present an image of neutrality, and the items can be banned under an “employer’s desire to pursue a policy of political, philosophical, and religious neutrality, with regard to its customers or users, in order to take account of their legitimate wishes”, basically reaffirming a judgment that was passed in 2017.
