We all know that kids love sugar. But studies show children today consume at least three times the recommended daily limit. With all this sugar lurking, how can a parent avoid it and still make quick low-sugar meals kids will love? Nutritionist and author Jennifer Tyler Lee joined us to discuss her new book, debunk the sugar myth, and help us avoid added sugar.
At our makers workshop we learned to brew our own fire cider, a traditional tonic of apple cider vinegar, honey, roots and spices including garlic, ginger, and pepper.

Herbalist Danya Mosgofian discussed the history of fire cider, including a recent trademark case, and ways to use it in your daily routine.
Sausalito resident Mike Moyle joined us at Driver’s Market to present the history of Caledonia Street. In a talk titled “Golfers, Gangsters and Garages” Mike used historical photographs to tell the stories of Sausalito’s buildings and local characters. In April 2016, Mike gave a similar talk as part of the Sausalito Historical Society that included an exhibit and the Caledonia Street Walking Tour. The Walking Tour featured a numbered photograph identifying the buildings that remain largely unchanged today, more than 85 years later.
Rika Gopinath of Yard Smart Marin, and Leslie Alden, Aide to Supervisor Kate Sears, joined us at Driver’s to present on the overuse of pesticides in Marin gardens. Research tells us that pesticides like RoundUp Glyphosate are toxic, and the Marin County government has strictly regulated their use over the last decade. Yet RoundUp is routinely used at homes and businesses all over Marin, threatening our environment, our health, and our water. The Yard Smart Marin coalition seeks to change that by promoting a holistic approach to pest control.

It was a perfect class: fun, funny and delicious.
