Green-Thumbed & Hands-On: These Residents Dig Gardening Gardens reflect the kind of care they get, and the BTV gardens are thriving! The Village gardens have been around since the â€˜80s, and this year a new and bigger garden was established at the southeast corner of the BTV campus. The success of the gardens is due in a large part to residents who take the time to plant, prune and nurture. These residents enjoy the fruits of their labor and say the rewards of gardening are many. Just ask them.

Q. As a native Arkansan and U of A alumna, what does it mean to you to lead the Arkansas Alumni Association? A. It’s a very personal honor to come back. I feel blessed to be here to lead our alumni association having previously been a student. I am looking forward to reaching out to alumni across the state and beyond who have a bond with our university. I want to understand the needs of alumni and put that toward increasing alumni engagement. Q. What do you think are the biggest challenges facing the Arkansas Alumni Association today? A. I don’t see things as challenges. We have an opportunity to be more valuable to our alumni. The alumni association should be a welcoming place where our alumni feel like they are coming home. We are seeking to provide better connections to the campus for our alumni and hope they feel like a part of the “You of A” for life. The key element is the value we provide through those opportunities. Q. Where do you see the Arkansas Alumni Association in five years? A. I envision the alumni association getting stronger and more relevant to our alumni. You can already see that through the programs we do, such as Career Hogs and Razorbacks Worldwide. We will continue to build relationships and grow
programs relative to the changing lives and dynamics of our alumni. Q. How can your leadership help the alumni association fulfill the mission of connecting and serving the University of Arkansas family? A. I have always felt that my job, in whatever capacity, is to be a servant leader. I want to listen to the needs of our team at the alumni association, our alumni and our campus community and to understand how we can be of service. If we aren’t listening to their needs, we won’t know how to be relevant. Q. The fundraising component of the executive director’s position is new. What role do you see fundraising playing in your job? A. Because of my background in alumni relations and development, I understand engagement. People give to things they are passionate about and believe in. If we provide reasons to engage, it benefits the individual and the good they can do for our students. That’s why I’m in higher education – the students. It increases the value of our degrees and the level of our recognition and acknowledgement of the university. Fundraising ultimately comes hand-in-hand with the work we do. We’re here to welcome all of our alumni home.

New Books BOOKS OF AGE Three novels on the new-book shelves this month offer proof that aging need not shut down the creative process. Still Life With Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen brings us the story of a 60-year-old photographer who learns it is never too late for second chances as she finds her way through the woods of upstate New York. Quindlen’s novels examine the emotions that lurk beneath everyday life and her superbly drawn characters in this story are good examples of this. In Paradise by 86-year-old Peter Matthiessen is a novel about an ecumenical retreat of Poles, Germans, Israelis, Catholic nuns, and Zen Buddhists who gather to meditate in honor of the victims and survivors of Auchwitz.
The 86-year-old Mary Higgins Clark does it again with her mystery novel, I’ve Got You Under My Skin. This may be her 50th novel, not counting her co-authorships.
NEW MYSTERIES Natchez Burning by Greg Iles is the first installment of an epic trilogy set in the Deep South, interweaving generations, family relationships and mystery for a gripping good read. Be Careful What You Wish For by Jeffrey Archer is the fourth volume of the Clifton Chronicles. Unlucky Thirteen is James Patterson’s 13th volume of the Women’s Murder Club series. The Target by David Baldacci features government assassin Will Robie and his partner Jessica Reel in a CIA adventure. Carnal Curiosity by Stuart Woods brings back Stone Barrington in an extraordinary new exploit.

Build a Better Salad!
Salad bars full of fresh vegetables seem like an obvious choice when you are looking for a delicious and healthy meal, and they often are. Depending on the mix of options you choose, however, your salad could weigh in with more calories than a plate of fried food. To build a better salad, follow these tips:
from the protein group. If you like your salad to have some crunch, a sprinkle of nuts or seeds will do the trick and add some additional protein and other nutrients.
Lead with Leafy Greens and Colorful Vegetables
To keep your salad high in nutrients and lower in calories, start with at least one cup of dark green leafy vegetables. Leafy greens offer fiber along with a variety of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals. Colorful vegetables not only brighten the look of your salad, but they add key nutrients like betacarotene from carrots and lycopene from tomatoes. Pick Up Some Protein
Beans, eggs, lean meats and poultry give your salad a boost of protein and turn it from a side dish into a meal. When adding protein, think of the one-fourth plate (or bowl) rule from MyPlate to guide your portion. About one-fourth of your salad should be 12 BUTTERFIELD LIFE
JULY + AUGUST 2014
Drizzle the Dressing
A drizzle of dressing can add flavor and some important healthy fats. Just be careful not to drown your salad. Calories from dressing can add up quickly and throw off the balance of your salad. If creamy dressings are your preference, start with a small amount and toss your salad well to spread the flavor around. You can also create your own dressing flavors by mixing vinegars, lemon juice, fresh herbs and a touch of olive oil. Source: www.choosemyplate.gov

Gardening for Good Health By Jennifer Neill, Fitness & Wellness Coordinator Gardening is a great way to get moving and involved in the Butterfield Trail Village community. Ask any of the BTV residents who garden and they’ll tell you how rewarding and beneficial it can be. Tending to your garden a few days a week will keep both you and your plants healthy. Not only does it get you outdoors and walking around, you’ll tone your arms as you dig and strengthen your back while you work over the soil. Bending over the planter can also help to maintain or even improve flexibility over time, as can reaching down into the garden while attending to your plants. A regular activity like gardening is key to maintaining your weight and strength for a lifetime. And because it’s something you enjoy, you won’t be watching the clock waiting for your workout to end!

They are becoming very popular here at the Village. You’ve probably seen residents using them in the halls and on our walking trails. Nordic walking — or pole walking — is a total body version of walking using a pole to help build upper body strength and endurance. Currently, about a dozen residents have purchased their own walking poles. We have Nordic Walking Poles we can loan you. Just contact the BTV Fitness/Wellness Office. Personalized Summertime Fitness

Horticultural Therapy and the Benefits of Gardening By Patricia Poertner, LSW It’s not difficult to find residents digging in the dirt this time of the year. We have several gardeners here at BTV who enjoy not only the fruits (or vegetables!) of their labor, but also the entire process of soil preparation, planting, and tending their plants until they yield beautiful flowers or fresh produce. However, you might like to know that these gardening efforts are doing more than beautifying our campus and putting healthy choices on the salad bar. There is evidence that these gardeners are actually leading happier and healthier lives as a result of their efforts. If you have done any gardening, you likely have experienced the peacefulness that comes with working outside in a garden or flowerbed. There is now a growing field (pun intended!) called “horticultural therapy” that combines the worlds of psychology, ecology and botany. According to the American Horticultural Therapy Association, HT is defined as “a process utilizing plants and horticultural activities to improve social, educational, psychological and physical adjustment of persons thus improving their body, mind and spirit.” Horticultural therapists use gardening as a tool to help people cope with mental, emotional and physical health conditions. “Horticultural therapy as a treatment for many psychological and physical disorders is a valid and increasingly popular intervention,” says Mitchell Hewson, Canada’s first registered horticultural therapist. Hewson has used horticultural therapy with people who are suffering from conditions such as dementia and eating disorders. “Horticultural therapy stimulates thought, exercises the body and encourages an awareness of the external environment. Moreover, the clients who have benefited from this type of therapy report a renewed desire to live and have decreased anxiety and improved self-worth.” Cognitive benefits of HT include improved concentration, stimulation of memory and improved attention capacity. Physical benefits include improved immune response, decreased stress, decreased heart rate and improved fine and gross motor skills and eye-hand coordination, while social benefits include improved social integration and 16 BUTTERFIELD LIFE

increased social interaction. Psychological benefits are numerous: improved quality of life, increased self-esteem, improved sense of well-being, reduction in stress, better mood, decreased anxiety, alleviation of depression, an increased sense of control, an improved sense of personal worth, increased feelings of calm and relaxation, an increased sense of stability and an increased sense of pride and accomplishment. For seniors, gardening can be especially fulfilling. Gardens invite socialization and can bring people together, thus helping to battle feelings of isolation. Bringing plants and people together promotes cooperation and provides a safe environment where people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities can work collectively towards a common goal. Because physical limitations impact the lives of many senior adults, it is important to make gardens accessible. An accessible garden eliminates barriers so that people of all abilities can garden. Using raised beds, such as we have here at BTV, is an important means of accomplishing this goal. However, if you can’t go to the garden, bring the garden to you! Consider using boxes, pots, table planters or hanging baskets on your patio to create your own private garden. How gardening affects the mind is still a mystery. However, scientists do know that gardening reduces stress and calms the nerves by decreasing cortisol, a hormone that plays a role in stress response. So, stress reduction, ultimately, may be the best benefit of gardening. Perhaps physicians should consider writing prescriptions for marigolds or tomato plants instead of antidepressants. While that likely will not happen, we do know that good nutrition, increased activity level and reduction in stress and anxiety are just a few of the positive outcomes provided by gardening. So, get digging! Source: http://health.howstuffworks.com, www.npr. org, www.extension.umn.edu, www.usatoday.com, www. greencirclegarden.com
Summer Sun from A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson (1885) Great is the sun, and wide he goes Through empty heaven with repose; And in the blue and glowing days More thick than rain he showers his rays. Though closer still the blinds we pull To keep the shady parlour cool, Yet he will find a chink or two To slip his golden fingers through. The dusty attic spider-clad He, through the keyhole, maketh glad; And through the broken edge of tiles Into the laddered hay-loft smiles. Meantime his golden face around He bares to all the garden ground, And sheds a warm and glittering look Among the ivy’s inmost nook. Above the hills, along the blue, Round the bright air with footing true, To please the child, to paint the rose, The gardener of the World, he goes.

Butterfield to Study Feasibility of Capital Campaign
Is Butterfield Trail Village ready to conduct a capital campaign? That is one of the questions Butterfield wants answered through a feasibility study that is now underway. Many organizations like Butterfield rely on a consultant to conduct a feasibility study as they prepare for a major fundraising campaign. The Butterfield Trail Village Foundation has hired consultant Ann Linebarger to conduct a limited feasibility study with results to be available as early as mid-July. Approximately 20 key area stakeholders are being interviewed by the consultant using a questionnaire to test BTV’s case statement and campaign goals, and help us develop a fundraising gift chart. In addition, the study will help identify any challenges, opportunities and barriers that may exist. According to Foundation Board President Mike Jones, “We will go out to our friends and supporters and the Northwest Arkansas community and say, ‘This is what we are talking about. Does this sound realistic to you?’” Conducting the study will help assess the donororganization relationship, and the information gleaned will be extremely valuable. The Foundation Board will listen carefully to the responses and evaluate them thoroughly, using study results to help develop future fundraising plans.
The Foundation gratefully acknowledges the following gifts received from April 22, 2014 through June 6, 2014:
