About the Book
Part of the What Can We Do About Pollution? series from Lerner’s Searchlight imprint, the book covers three major types of pollution produced by agriculture – air, water, and biological. It also talks about some of the strategies farmers use to reduce pollution associated with food production. For grades 3-5.
- I grew up in Alberta, which is famous for both wheat and beef. It was interesting (and a bit scary) learning the science behind the smell of feedlots.
- For seven years, I lived in Nova Scotia, where aquaculture is used to raise fish and shellfish. Biological pollution – the spread of farmed animals into the wild – is a major concern with aquaculture.
- While researching this book, I learned new ways to reduce pollution on the foods I eat every day – I hope you will, too!
