Golden Leaves Funeral Plans:
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.
Handling all of these challenges is difficult enough in one’s normal circumstances, but having to go through it while abroad is an enormous burden.
Golden Leaves Funeral Plans aims to support grieving families during these tumultuous times. Since our inception in 1984, we have partnered with a widespread network of funeral directors across the UK and Europe.
Purchasing a funeral plan with Golden Leaves enables you to plan, design and pay for your funeral services in advance.
As one of the leading providers of expat prepaid funeral plans in Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Balearic Islands, and the Canary Islands, we make sure to adequately support your family in the time of greatest need.

Halting Erosion using Vetiver:
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment. 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.

New approach to tracking and monitoring of Covid-19 cases in Andalucía: The Junta de Andalucía has agreed to modify the follow-up and tracking of people with Covid-19, and their contacts.
-The decision, which was reached on 3 January, means that testing for vulnerable people and those with severe Covid-19 symptoms will be prioritised. The practice of following up close contacts by telephone will end and the Junta, in agreement with the Ministry of Health, has also ruled out the quarantine of entire classrooms.
-If a case of Covid-19 is suspected but not confirmed by a self-diagnostic test, patients should isolate and notify close contacts.
-If an individual tests positive for Covid-19 with a self-diagnostic test, they should contact the Public Health Service, preferably through the Salud Responde app, in addition to initiating isolation and control measures. Further tests will be carried out on selected cases where it is required.
-People who test positive for Covid but who are asymptomatic or have only mild symptoms should isolate at home. If there is no reason to consider them vulnerable, active clinical monitoring will not be carried out. However, if a patient is vulnerable, active clinical follow-up will be carried out while they isolate at home.
-Anyone who tests positive for Covid-19 should isolate for a minimum of seven days. For those with severe disease or weakened immune systems, the minimum isolation period is unchanged at 21 days. Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/andalucia/approach-tracking-covid19-20220104095916-nt.html

UK vaccine scientist- Continuous boosters are unstudied and unnecessary: The head of the United Kingdom’s vaccine oversight body said regular boosters are unsustainable and need more research.
Andrew Pollard, chairman of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization, said the U.K. should not yet follow Israel and Germany in giving out booster coronavirus vaccines to everyone over 60.
“We know that people have strong antibodies for a few months after their third vaccination, but more data is needed to assess whether, when, and how often those who are vulnerable will need additional doses,” Pollard said. “We can’t vaccinate the planet every four to six months. It’s not sustainable or affordable. In the future, we need to target the vulnerable.” Full article: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/uk-vaccine-scientist-continuous-boosters-are-unstudied-and-unnecessary
