This project aims to raise awareness about the effects of illegal use of poisoned baits in the natural environment, biodiversity and society. More specifically, we will educate students of semi-urban environments on the effects of pesticides against rodents on the trophic webs, using Tyto alba (Barn-owls) as a case study. Moreover, we will build and place nest-boxes around schools and provide students with instructions on how to build their own. In this way, we are setting an example on how rodent populations can be locally controlled by barn-owls rather than pesticides.

The next step is to organize this information to a powerpoint and spread it to our social circle (like clubs, organizations, schools etc). The last step is to inform and try to sensitize some of the local food industries and persuade them to stop the use of palmoil in their products.

Where will the sewage go after the pipes are shutdown you ask? Well we'll sell it to farmers who need fertilizer and give the rest to a purification facility, we'll also use dredgers to clean litter and plastic and introduce a £50 fine if caught throwing litter in the river then we will introduce plants and fish into the river.

We will start by introducing 4th-6th grade students to sustainable options which can be used in lieu of plastic and styrofoam products. NOTE: Many of these students have gone through the Kids for Positive Change program and are familiar with skipping the straw, using reusable straws, bags and bottles. We also will work with a community restaurant owner who actively composts, and teach students about the benefits of composting. We'd like to set up a composting station at school and continue our school recycling program. We will have students research sustainable and compostable products, like utensils made from corn and cups made from wheat and provide them with materials to "build" their own compostable products. A main focus will be raising awareness about plastic bag pollution and promoting the use of reusable bags. Much like our Classroom-Community Action Assignment: "The Last Plastic Straw Ashtabula Campaign," we will have students launch a similar campaign about plastic bags. Students will present at Ashtabula City Council and Board of Education meeting about zero waste and how to move toward making Ashtabula Area City Schools a Zero Waste / Sustainable School System!

The grandchildren (now ages 4 and 6) help to choose plants, and they help to plant and care for them. They have selected fruit trees to grow and have specified which butterflies to try to attract to the garden. They help to water and to weed and to fill the bird-feeder.
