Dine and Discover Meal

A Sunday Evening of Nature, Delicious Food & Connection

We’re thrilled to announce Dine & Discover, a new dinner series on our Bainbridge Island campus. Join us for the perfect Sunday evening, with live music, a beautiful meal, and complementary wine pairings. What a delicious way to support IslandWood’s innovative environmental education programs!

Dinner will be prepared by Chef Jim White and his team, who are passionate about bringing sustainably sourced foods and thoughtful dining experiences to students and adults alike. Our meals are inspired by the seasons, featuring locally sourced ingredients as much as possible. Because of this, our menu is designed just days prior to the event. Here’s the menu from our most recent dinner to give you a sense of the kinds of delicious meals that Chef Jim and his team create! Also, we’re happy to accommodate specific dietary requests and you’ll be able to note those when purchasing your tickets.

Dinner is served family-style at community tables. If you’re joining a large group (8 people or more), please specify your group when purchasing tickets and we’ll be sure to reserve seats together for your group.

No need to get fancy! Casual dress is welcome.

For those of you coming from Seattle, ferries leave Seattle at 3:50 and 4:45pm. You can drive your car onto the ferry and park at IslandWood.
