Heart centred experiences


In life, the experiences we share are what connect us to one another. 


This is your opportunity to slow down and be present. To take a deep breathe, center yourself, and truly experience the joy of spending time with the ones we cherish the most. 


My intention is that you share a wonderful memory and reconnect to all that there is to be grateful for in the every day.


Hello! My name is Alana Catlin.


My calling is people experience love and connection and The Local Picnic is a vision of mine come to reality. I dreamt of developing a business that enabled me to express my love and creativity while offering people the opportunity to participate in unique experiences where they could just simply… be. 


I believe it's extremely important we support and lift-up one another wherever we can. That's why The Local Picnic is creatively inspired, eco-conscious and passionate about supporting other local businesses. All of the products used in our picnic packages have been developed here on the island by many people you may already know and love!


Home to heart centred experiences, The Local Picnic brings people together for romantic dinners, nature based picnics, and memorable moments. I am here so you can spend less time creating and planning and more time fulfilling on an experience with those you care about most.


"The faster we live, the less emotion is left in the world.

The slower we live, the deeper we feel the world around us."

- Stanko Abadzic



At the heart of every picnic is connection. Our picnics are carefully curated to create connections to our communities and to one another.


A taste of the island - Vendors rotate monthly but remain deliciously local.
