Burning fields of the straw has long been part of the Chinese farming tradition as straw occupied a big amount of cultivated area, even this was forbidden for 17 years by Chinese Government since 1999.For living, lots of local farmers burning straw for more available land to plant crops. Need to pass this message to more people of how burning straw affect our life thus improve the national environment protection awareness.


Build up the long term mini "straw shed" in Shanghai Sanquanlu Primary School as showcase. Invite the technology experts to have training in Chongming Dong tan community and build up two mushroom sheds with Chong ming local farmers.
