Ana Juan, president and commerce councillor, traced participation at the event to "collaboration on the part of our local government and designers", and described Bridal Fashion Week as "the perfect chance to showcase Formentera-made fashion".

Eva Cardona presented an exclusive collection of wedding dresses were true to the elegant, minimalist and, at the same time, glamorous style that the designer honed on Formentera.

For their part, Majoral presented necklaces, bracelets and silver crowns with paint in various colours, with plant motifs, evoking the seventies and the hippy spirit.

Bridal Fashion Week also paid tribute to Amalia Mora, who was one of the great exponents of fashion in the Pine Islands.

Calendar of activities and events for month of May

foto 2023v agenda activa CThe Office of Tourism of the Consell de Formentera has put together a brochure of all the cultural, sports and active tourist activities on the island during the month of May. "In this way, we give visitors a guide where they can quickly find everything Formentera has to offer in the low season", said Alejandra Ferrer, vice president and tourism councillor.

A forthcoming activities calendar will focus on all the leisure options offered by the island's administration, associations and businesses--not to mention details on open accommodations and restaurants--toward the end of the high season. As Ferrer put it, "the ultimate goal is to have a programme with proposals covering 365 days a year". All this information will be included in a section of the Office of Tourism website and will be available at tourist information offices, as well as on social media, fairs and other promotions.

Activities agenda
The Consell's May tourist agenda features information and contacts with companies specialised in bicycle excursions, wine tasting, scuba diving, sailing boat rentals, horseback riding, wellness and health activities, birdwatching and environmental walks, gastronomic circuits, and more. It also includes the cultural and sports agenda.

"The idea is to foment year-round activities related to the natural environment, sports and culture; activities that promote the circular economy and diversification, and, at the same time, encourage local businesses to grow this offer. Programming like this is the best way to raise the island's profile", concluded the councillor.

Formentera creates phytosanitary and irrigation advisory service for Cooperativa del Camp members

foto 2023v es cap2The Office of Rural Environment of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that local government and the island's agricultural cooperative, La Cooperativa del Camp, have joined forces to launch a service to relay phytosanitary and irrigation-related information that can be used by Cooperativa members. Josep Marí, rural environment councillor, explained local government's support for the initiative: "Technological advances must also benefit Formentera's countryside. This is a way to tailor plant health treatments, prevent pests and diseases, and improve agricultural yield through the proper use of water".

This advisory service will receive inputs from two new agro-climatic stations in Es Cap and Sant Ferran that are equipped with soil humidity sensors and humidity, temperature and rainfall leaves, and two virtual weather data points in La Mola and Can Marroig. Data from the stations help generate predictive modelling and irrigation guidelines, not to mention information on risks of plant diseases and pests.

Once validated by the Cooperativa del Camp technical service, the resulting irrigation and health warnings and recommendations will be sent to member growers. A company specialised in this type of project installed the stations and computer system for €6,836.50 (VAT included). The operations were financed by the Office of Rural Environment.
