In our 6th grade science class in late May and early June, we worked on a science project with Mrs. Poyer on environmental issues, and solutions to them. Our group chose pesticides, and decided to contact and visit local businesses to learn about what they are doing on the topic of pesticides, as well as everything else they are doing for the environment. We got information from Krogh's, Shoprite, and Salt GastroPub. We got the opportunity to visit Shoprite and Salt, and we contacted Krogh's through Facebook Messenger.
The most important thing we took away from this project was that Byram mostly frowns upon the use of pesticides in local businesses. We were told by Salt that they do not use pesticides at all, and that the use of it is frowned upon. We also learned that Salt uses a beehive at their restaurant, and that Shoprite reuses breads to use for feed for animals. They also hand in cardboard to the town, and the store, as well as Byram, get credit for it.
You can see the documentary we put together above. My group and I learned a lot from this project, and I hope you enjoy watching the final product.
