Food in Community Workshop:
The kitchen is the hearth of a community. It's the place where we gather daily to nourish our hearts, souls & bodies. It's the place where we find not only sustenance, but a place to play, be creative, use our senses, and to work together in a spirit of service for the health of the community, and it's also a sanctuary where heart medicine is made. During this workshop we'll look at examples of how different Intentional Communities organize their food plans, kitchens, purchasing & sourcing, storage, processing, menu planning, meeting dietary restrictions, and communal food based business models.
