Family Style Meals

IslandWood, in keeping with its environmentally sustainable policies and mission, serves freshly made breakfasts, lunches, and dinners to workshop attendees with ingredients from its own gardens and other local sources. Meals are served family style at long tables in the dining hall and, during the Gathering, offered a chance for people to interact and connect more intimately than a typical buffet or individually plated style of service. Comments such as, "Heh, can you pass down the salad please?" "Oops, we need more butter and rolls at this end!" "There's whipped cream? I didn't get any! Can I have some from your table please?", were commonly heard throughout the weekend and often proceeded to more intimate discussions as each meal progressed. The fresh ingredients and in-house baked goods were gobbled up by ravenous walkers almost as fast as the staff could bring them out! Thank you IslandWood kitchen staff for keeping our bellies full and our minds sharp.
