Last week in Novigrad, the first group of 200 guests from Germany started harvesting olives in the olive groves of Laguna Novigrad.In the morning, the guests went to the olive groves and thus gave their contribution to the production of the esteemed olive oil Vergal. During the harvest, which was accompanied by traditional Istrian music, they also had the opportunity to enjoy local gourmet specialties.”Today has definitely exceeded all my expectations. Picking olives in the first row to the sea, excellent food, oil tasting and helpful waiters. A special day in a beautiful location “, said Klaudia from Germany, who, along with other guests, opened this year’s olive harvest.The company Laguna Novigrad, which manages the tourist brand Aminess Hotels & Campsites, offers guests a unique tourist package that includes accommodation in its facilities and participation in the olive harvest. Thus, every year, during October and November, during the harvest period, Novigrad is visited by more than 700 guests from all over Europe. After the harvest, guests visit the oil mill where they attend the process of processing harvested olives, and as a souvenir they receive a bottle of Vergal.The olive groves where Vergal is produced are located in the immediate vicinity of the sea, which maximally benefits the olive fruit and the quality of the oil. The oil is obtained directly from the olive fruit by a mechanical cold processing process while the fruits are harvested by hand in order to preserve the quality and body of the fruit to the maximum.The quality of Vergal is recognized by both experts and consumers, and it is the winner of several national and international awards. Among them are this year’s award in the Best of Class category, for Vergal Frantoio won in New York at “The New York International Olive Oil Competition”, the largest and one of the most respected competitions in assessing the quality of olive oils in the world, and a gold gourmet medal for Vergal Frantoio as part of the International Edible Oils Competition awarded by L’Agence pour la Valorisation des Produits Agricoles (AVPA) in Paris.Also, the renowned world guide to the highest quality olive oils “Flos Olei 2019” was recently included. For the sixth time, Vergal is part of a world guide that evaluates hundreds of olive oils from all over the world every year. By the way, Aminess also uses the same quality olive oil in its gastronomic offer, ie in the kitchen during the tourist season.A great example of how the tourist season lengthensIn the off-season, 700 guests came to Novigrad, but the motive for their arrival was not the sea and beaches, but olive picking and quality content. Now this whole project, like many others, should rise to a higher level, but not only Aminess, but in synergy the whole destination. This is just a “proof of concept” and one small wheel, now imagine that in Novigrad at the same time we have 5-6 more similar events, that’s about 5.000 nights. The calculation is clear.In north-western Istria we have the best example of the synergy of destinations in Croatia, through Colors of Istria, which extended the season through various contents in the pre- and post-season, and most importantly, not the focus on numbers, but on quality guests who generate much more tourist consumption.On the other side of the Adriatic, more precisely in Postira on the island of Brač, the 2nd World Olive Picking Championship was held this weekend, with teams from Montenegro, France, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Hungary, Great Britain, Sweden, Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Herzegovina, the United States and, of course, Croatia. The event, the main goals of which are to spread olive culture, exchange experiences, socialize between representatives of olive growers, but also countries that do not have such a developed olive tradition, was organized for the second year in a row by Postira Tourist Board and Agricultural Cooperative from Brač.A great example of how the tourist season lengthens. We don’t have to invent “hot water”, we just offer what is natural and logical. Let us be what we are, I must be our main tourist product. Content, only quality content is the main formula of the ingredient how to prolong the tourist season.
November 07, 2017 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Human Services, Press Release, PSA, Public Health, Public Safety, Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today reminded Pennsylvanians that there is federal funding available for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Crisis and regular LIHEAP applications began November 1, 2017 and end April 6, 2018.“Making sure all Pennsylvanians are safe and healthy is my top priority,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “It is essential that we ensure that every Pennsylvanian has a warm home and I encourage anyone who needs this assistance to apply for the program that provides hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvania’s families with a warm place to live throughout the winter.”LIHEAP provides assistance for home heating bills to keep low-income Pennsylvanians warm and safe during the winter months. The program is available to both renters and homeowners. The support comes in the form of a grant, so the individual does not have to repay assistance, and funds go directly to their utility company or home heating fuel provider.During the 2016-17 LIHEAP season, 348,672 households statewide received $116,494,464 million in LIHEAP cash benefits. These households received an average benefit of $334.“LIHEAP is a federal program that was at risk for cuts earlier this year,” Governor Wolf said. “A cold home in the winter can have devastating consequences for infants, elderly and those with compromised immune systems. This is vital funding that cannot be reduced or eliminated, and I will fight to ensure that doesn’t happen.”For more information on the LIHEAP program, or to download an application, visit DHS’s LIHEAP webpage.Having a warm home is one way to stay healthy and safe over the winter. The Pennsylvania Department of Health also offers helpful tips to be prepared for winter weather.Some of the tips included are:Infants and older Pennsylvanians are at greater risk of serious cold-related health issues and should be checked frequently to ensure they are warm enough during cold weather.Provide warm clothing for infants, and ensure that those less than one year old never sleep in a cold room because they lose body heat more easily than adults and are unable to make enough body heat by shivering.Older adults often make less body heat because of a slower metabolism and less physical activity. If you are over 65 years of age, check the temperature in your home often during extremely cold weather.When power outages occur during winter storms, the use of other sources of fuel or electricity for heating, cooling or cooking can cause carbon monoxide (CO) to build up in a home, garage or camper and poison the people and animals inside.CO is found in combustion fumes, such as those made by small gasoline engines, stoves, generators, lanterns and gas ranges, or by burning charcoal and wood. Governor Wolf Reminds Consumers of Availability of Federal Funding for the Heating Assistance Program (LIHEAP) How to recognize CO poisoning:Exposure to CO can cause loss of consciousness and death; the most common symptoms of CO poisoning include headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting; chest pain; and confusion.People who are sleeping or who have been drinking alcohol can die from CO poisoning before ever having symptoms.
