Excitement is in the air! With the first of many markets getting their start last month, we’re renewed with optimism for the new growing season. Believe it or not, your first CSA shares will arrive in just three weeks. (Can you believe it?!?)

Three weeks?! Many of you are looking at your calendars and realizing that it should read, “…two weeks.” However, given the tremendous amount of rain and cold, we’ll be forced to start a week later than expected.

The first CSA shares will be delivered on Wednesday, June 22nd. Please review the delivery schedule below, login to your account at http://www.waywardseed.com, and select a pick up location.

As you know, Wayward Seed has been working cooperatively with several local producers to bring supplements to your CSA. Thus far, we’re proud to bring you Snowville Creamery and Cafe Brioso. You may add these items to your order at any time online, either as a standing order, or as a one time option.

Snowville Creamery:
Enjoy milk the way it used to be. As a supplement to your vegetable share, you may purchase half gallons of Snowville Creamery milk (fat free, 2%, or whole milk) for $3.00 each.

Cafe Brioso:
Enjoy the process—as well as the product. Artisan-roasted coffees are roasted in-store by owner-roastmaster Jeff Davis. You may purchase coffee by the pound or half pound, whole bean or ground, regular of decaf for $11.00 per pound.

So, you have two tasks–first, to decide which pick up location best suits your needs and second, to decide if your CSA needs include our coffee and milk supplements. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via phone or email. And don’t worry, we’ll remind you again of your first pick up before it happens.

COLUMBUS, OH (May 11, 2011) – Available Light Theatre will present its season finale, an original production titled “The Food Play,” from June 2 – 11, 2011. With seven performances at the North Market, the company will provide theatergoers with a unique experience exploring sustainability and food.

The Food Play” will examine a variety of issues about food—from organic to factory-farmed—currently in the news and on the minds of consumers. It will charge headfirst into the most delicious questions of our time: “What is good food?” and “What does it mean to eat right?” Audience members will enjoy an immersive experience as they explore these topics by sampling food produced and provided by Local Matters, Two Caterers and Jeni’s Ice Cream.

In addition,  each evening will have a special featured guest for a discussion and question and answer session, including writers from Edible Columbus, Michael Jones from Local Matters, Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Bethia Woolf from Columbus Food Adventures, Jaime and Adam Welly of Wayward Seed Farm, and Warren Taylor of Snowville Creamery.

“Each night, the show will be a little bit different,” said Matt Slaybaugh, artistic director for Available Light Theatre.  “We’re building the show to be highly adaptive, so it will change a bit each time depending on who’s in the crowd, what food Local Matters is serving, and what everyone wants to talk about. Food is a big subject, so the show will have a slightly different focus each performance.”

The play is also an extension of the company’s mission. From its inception, Available Light has been committed to healthy, organic and locally grown artistic theatre productions. As with past productions, patrons will enjoy Available Light’s trademark style, described by American Theatre magazine as “songs and scenes, quips and quotations… a brilliantly eclectic anthology.”

Ticket prices for reserved seats start at $40. For more information and to reserve tickets, visit: http://thefoodplaycom. Additionally, Available Light will also offer tickets at the door via its “Pay What You Want” pricing option, limited to the first 25 patrons every evening.
