ResumenUnderstanding and preserving our environment and spreading the information found about the richness of our cultural and natural background in Iznalloz (Granada, Spain) is essential for the development of our students. Therefore, by applying the scientific method and focusing our research on the surrounding fields through a water and soil quality analysis, we have obtained knowledge of how farming activities or even uncontrolled dumping of waste prove to be substantial in the modification of the quality of our environment. Thus, the presence of polluting elements in water like nitrates, phosphates or ammonia, can be attributed to a number of factors such as some farming routines. Olive trees, for instance, are located in fields with high cationic exchange capacity. High levels of microorganisms have been found to cause the high rate of fertility of these soils. On the other hand, the tests done on the wastelands which are too often used as uncontrolled dumping areas rather than farming fields show significant reductions in the amount of beneficiary parameters mentioned above. The whole educational community can benefit from the results and learning processes of this research in terms of a higher environmental awareness.
