Halting Erosion Using Vetiver Grass from Vetiver Spain:
Vetiver Grass is a fast growing non-invasive clumping grass that grows to 2 metres in height. It has a root system that grows to 3-4 metres deep and they are very strong.
The National Geographic Magazine has called them “Roots of Steel”.
Once Vetiver is established it is drought resistant.
We are located in Sayalonga and we can plant all year round but February and March are the best months to plant Vetiver. Vetiver loves the heat of a long summer to get established.
Decomposing Vetiver used as a mulch, improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away as it is a natural insect repellent. It is in the same family as Lemon Grass, which we also carry.
Vetiver also is a nutritious and replenishable animal feed. Horses, cattle, and pigs love it.
We use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive Ornamental hedge.

Andalusia’s new tourist housing decree- owners say it “criminalises” them: {Translation} 10 Mayo, 2022 – 14:10
-The regulation of tourist accommodation has always been a bone of contention and the processing of a new decree by the Junta de Andalucía is on its way to becoming another mess. The Association of Professionals of Tourist Homes and Apartments of Andalusia (AVVAPro) has announced today that it will present allegations to this new regulatory text and encourages all owners of this type of property to do the same because they understand that this decree “criminalises the sector and goes against private property”.
-The Governing Council of the Junta de Andalucía approved on 19 April that the Regional Ministry of Tourism should begin the process of drafting a new decree on tourist flats (AT) and tourist accommodation (VFT). Although they may seem to be the same thing, they are totally different, as tourist flats are practically considered hotels and are governed by their own rules, while the dwellings are owned by companies or individuals and have different requirements. The Junta wants to unify the regulation of the two.
-In the specific case of tourist accommodation, the Junta reported that “the operating conditions will be reviewed and the figure of the VFT management companies will be regulated as owners of the operation of several of these accommodations”, adding that “this figure will come to professionalise the operation of housing and to facilitate relations with the tourist administration”.
-The Andalusian association of tourist accommodation does not see it this way. In fact, its president, Carlos Pérez-Lanzac, points out that the decree that is to be implemented “is tremendously burdensome and does not reflect the reality of the sector or its importance in the economy of our region”. This association does not oppose the regulation to put TA and VFT in the same bag, but believes that the measure “comes to restrict intervene and corset the figure of the VFT, creating the professional figure of VFT to destroy it, and proposes some modifications for the TA where the basic criteria are relaxed with unambitious improvements”.
-AVVAPro stresses, as they have done on other occasions, that “private property is attacked when the conditions for the operation of the VFTs ensure that the same person or entity can only have two dwellings for tourist purposes in the entire autonomous community”. “Such a limit cannot be imposed if the aim is to professionalise the sector and serve consumers and users, as it would mean a significant loss of competitiveness for the destination,” they insist.
-The owners of tourist accommodation assure that the market is already “perfectly ordered” and give as an example the registration of properties in the Junta de Andalucía and the existence of “highly effective supervisory and inspection measures, in addition to the mechanisms established in the Horizontal Property Law to limit holiday homes”. The employers’ association stresses that in Andalusia there are 84,172 tourist homes -most of them in Malaga- which generate 15,100 direct jobs and an income of 1.8 billion euros.
-The emergence of tourist accommodation came as a complete surprise to the authorities a few years ago. There had always been individuals who had rented their homes to others to spend weeks or months in summer, but it was something practically homemade, by word of mouth or with the typical “for rent” sign hanging on the terrace. With the birth of Airbnb in 2008, this phenomenon multiplied, as any owner can put their property for rent to tourists on this platform and receive bookings directly through their mobile phone. Bookings were professionalised, demand, supply and business skyrocketed, catching the administrations off guard. It was and is easy money for the owners and a headache for the neighbours, especially when these flats are in fully residential buildings.
-In 2016 the Junta de Andalucía passed its first decree to try to regulate this situation, obliging owners to register the properties and comply with a series of requirements. The bubble subsided because not every property was suitable for tourism and the pandemic put the sector on the ropes as it was unable to receive clients, to the point that many of the owners switched to renting out their properties to long term tenants. Tourism is back, tourist properties are once again enjoying high occupancy rates – at the long weekend in May they exceeded 80% in Malaga city – and the regulatory mess is back. We will have to see what happens in the coming weeks, although we must not forget that the Andalusian elections are on 19 June. Source, Spanish: https://www.malagahoy.es/


Met Office warns another calima is due to hit the south of Spain later this week: Aemet, the Spanish Meteorological Office, is warning that the dreaded calima could affect Andalucía again his week. It is predicting that the Saharan dust will arrive in the south of Spain on Thursday and continue throughout Friday.
-For Thursday, the region can expect some cloudy intervals but little change to the temperatures, and on Friday the situation is expected to be similar although the maximum temperature may be a little lower. Friday will also be more windy, with strong force 7 winds in the Strait of Gibraltar, where a yellow warning will be in force from 10am. Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/ 


UKRAINE SUPPORT– Chef José Andrés is looking for volunteers in Malaga to give food to the refugees from Ukraine: {Translation, summary}
-Chef José Andrés needs people to help him in Málaga to feed refugees from the war in Ukraine. To do this, you have to go to the NGO’s website and fill in a simple form. The international organisation needs staff in Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga.
Info: https://wck.org/es-es/volunteer
Sign Up: https://wck.volunteerhub.com/lp/spain
To this end, it states in a letter that, for its food aid efforts, World Central Kitchen (WCK) activates its ‘Immediate Response Chefs’. These are professional cooks, logisticians and other specialists to set up and supervise the emergency kitchens they operate in the aftermath of a disaster.
In this case the exodus of Ukrainian refugees to Andalusia.
-Thus, the NGO warns that these efforts would not be possible without the work of volunteers, most of whom are local to the communities we assist. Some people travel to help us, but they do it on their own and make their own arrangements, but most are local. And that’s what they ask for: people from Malaga who are willing to help.
-Before going into service they will be trained to carry out the work they will be entrusted with within the structure of the organisation. They are looking for people with experience in a professional kitchen, all-terrain vehicles to help with the purchase and delivery of food, as well as anyone who is willing to serve fresh food with a smile.
-The various emergency kitchens being planned in these three Spanish cities will have varying capacities for our youngest helpers. To ensure health and well-being, safety precautions have been put in place by Covid. Masks must be worn at all times.
-Chefs and drivers with large vehicles for deliveries especially encouraged to apply.

Malaga Mayor Discouraging Rowdy Tourists Just When Publicans Are Praying For A Tourism Recovery – Costa del Sol mayor calls for crack down on stag and hen party noise and disturbance: They’re back. The outrageous outfits and group T-shirts with dubious slogans. The good weather and easing of Covid-19 restrictions have attracted stag and hen parties back to Malaga. Alcohol is a basic feature of these parties, and with it come the hullabaloo and unrestrained noise.
-The mayor, Francisco de la Torre, announced this Monday, 10 May, that the council will not allow Malaga to become an uncontrolled city and plans to take measures to prevent it. One idea is to install sound level monitors inside some tourist accommodation, although he didn’t give any details about how this would be done, so the authorities can take action if there is too much noise. He said that anyone who comes to the city has to abide by coexistence regulations and the council will take strong action if they do not.
-Although he admitted that the number of complaints has increased in recent weeks, he also said that in the city centre there were no more than five calls a day to complain about noise. Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/

British Airways blames Covid for cancellations and refuses to pay compensation: On the day when British Airways cancelled another 120-plus flights to and from its main base, London Heathrow, it has emerged that the airline is rejecting compensation claims for grounded flights.
-BA has serious resourcing issues which are leading to the daily cancellation of many domestic and European flights. The airline says that most passengers are informed well in advance. But if travellers are given less than two weeks’ notice, under European air passengers’ rights rules they are entitled to cash compensation of between £220 and £520 – depending on the length of the flight. The only grounds on which a carrier can reject a claim is if an “extraordinary circumstance” was responsible.
-Nick Goodess was due to fly from London Heathrow to Hanover on 24 April. His flight was cancelled with a week’s notice, and he applied for the statutory compensation. But the passenger was told: “Your claim’s been refused because flight BA978 on 24 April was cancelled as a result of the global pandemic caused by Covid-19.” Full article: https://www.independent.co.uk/
