Local authors of the new book “What’s Making Our Children Sick” will talk about how toxins in food and the environment are leading to behavioral, developmental, and neurological illnesses in local kids. This event is not to be missed!
Join a statewide community – through local campaign efforts – working for a safe, toxic free future!
Gain the tools needed to eliminate toxic pesticides from our schools and parks.
Free! Kids are welcome!
Why do we need a toxic free future?
Sonoma County leads the way in providing community members a healthy quality of life, thriving watersheds and world class recreation. However, we still rely on toxic pesticides, such as glyphosate-based RoundupTM — a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer — for weed management in our public spaces, recreation areas & school grounds.
All synthetic weed killing products are harmful to human health and the environment.

We invite you to join us Saturday, June 23rd from 5:00 to 9:00 pm for a fantastic dinner catered by A La Heart at the Friedman Center in Santa Rosa.
Come celebrate and share stories with Sonoma County’s environmental leaders and passionate community members. A La Heart will be serving a delicious three-course meal focused on locally grown, healthy ingredients.
