    Most of Vermont is pretty rural; once we head out of major towns we won't pass many decent restaurants and your options for food can be extremely limited. This makes it necessary for us to preplan most meals.

    Half-day Private Workshops:

    We typically don't plan any stops for meals unless requested prior to the workshop. You're welcome to request a stop at convenience store at any time.

    Full-day Private Workshops or Group Workshops longer than 4 hours:

    We typically plan to stop at restaurants at appropriate times. Examples:

    • If your workshop starts at or before 9am, we will include a stop for breakfast/brunch.

    • If your workshop starts at or before noon and ends at or before 2pm, we will include a stop for lunch/brunch.

    • If your workshop starts at or after 1pm and ends at or after 7pm, we will include a stop for dinner.

    Group Workshops shorter than 4 hours:

    We plan to stop at a convenience store usually about midway through the workshop but we don't plan any stops for meals.

    You're also welcome to bring snacks and drinks as long as you agree to fully clean up and dispose of everything properly. (No littering!)

    Please check all that are acceptable or any dietary restrictions that apply to you:

    Please use this space to provide dietary requirements/restrictions or more information about any of the items you selected above. Feel free to also indicate what other food(s) you like or dislike and your approximate budget.
