Students make book about biological pesticides!

During the 2018-2019 school year, 5th graders (currently in the 6th grade) developed a project in the area of ​​Citizenship and Development on the theme of Animal Welfare in Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo (FCR). During the project, among other things, these students made books for sale about biological pesticides (PB). Students would like to encourage people to use biological pesticides over chemical pesticides, which may endanger animals and insects. The money raised from the sale of these books (€ 94,00 !) was handed over last Monday to the Association Transhumance and Nature (ATNature). We want to express our thanks and announce that it has already been used to purchase supplementary food for horses and is already being used to feed a slightly weakened Sorraia mare.

A good word to the Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo School Group for its work and for raising students' awareness of such important causes.

NOTE: If you want one of the last copies of this book visit the  Association headquarters. Go quickly before before there are no more copies left!
