Event description



As individuals how do we empower ourselves with the most important ways to support a healthy climate? Food is a great place to start. Shop for food from local farms and producers that take care of their workforce and land, Eat less meat, reduce food waste and unnecessary packaging.

Free workshop at Good Earth Natural Foods in Mill Valley the first Tuesday of every month at 10:00 AM. Approximately 1 1/2 hours


Good Earth Natural Foods is an ideal place to buy the healthiest food available and to know where our food is coming from. Please join me while we walk through all of the departments of the store and learn how to move towards a non-disposable life from Farm to Waste Stream. Here are a few of the topics we will discuss while touring the store.

  • Global food waste- why this subject is so important. Whats our part?

  • Individually we throw away 1/3 of what we buy at the store. We can look at ways to avoid that.

  • learn how to manage your waste stream from using your green can for compost, proper recycling and landfill.

  • Why recycling plastic is confusing is not the answer and understanding how our waste stream/resources works are essential in moving towards a zero waste society.

  • The variety of options for buying food in less packaging including buying in bulk.

  • What “tare” weight is and the simple steps to use your own containers, cloth bags and jars to purchase food.

  • How to organize your kitchen and properly store food once you bring it home.

  • Why these practices also save you food dollars.
