FROM SEED TO TABLE A COCKTAIL GARDEN PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE SUN


Before you read this, take off all your clothes. Now look in the mirror for signs of melanoma/skin cancer. Notice any changes in the shape or color of your moles or freckles? Do you have any new blemishes that are larger than 1/4-inch, varied in color, irregular or asymmetrical in shape? If so, you may have melanoma or another form of skin cancer and you should see a dermatologist. Left alone, melanoma will spread throughout your body and eventually kill you. Melanoma can be successfully cured if caught early. Okay, you can put your clothes back on now.

T

he month of May means flowers are in bloom, spring sports are in full swing, and Mother’s Day celebrations are in the works. I miss many things about my mother, Margaret. Mostly, I miss the little things—her ageless energy, contagious laughter, and famous homemade cinnamon rolls. I smile when I think about seeing her and my father dancing to their favorite big band sounds in the middle of the day and the extra suitcases packed with surprises for our kids when my parents visited us from Michigan. But most of all, I remember her choice to be happy, even when life was hard. She was someone who truly could light up a room. I think of her every day.

BEND WHITEWATER PARK REOPENS The Bend Park and Recreation District reopened the Bend Whitewater Park on March 18, following winter work modifications to improve performance in the whitewater and passageway channels. “ The winter modifications were completed with only minimal disruptions due to the winter weather conditions,” said Brian Hudspeth, development manager for the District. “ The feedback about the wave features and the passageway channel is favorable and we look forward to the upcoming river recreation season.” The completed whitewater channel modifications included raising the pool elevations above the lower two features and shallowing the pool below the upper wave by installing a concrete “floor” to help stabilize the wave. The passageway channel work focused on installing boulders to direct water through the center of the channel, thus decreasing the chance of floaters dropping over the shoulders and flipping.   The project’s original funding allocation, remaining bond funds from the Farewell Bend Bridge project, and property tax revenue provided the winter work funding.

S

prawling across two acres on the outskirts of Sisters, the nonprofit organic farm Seed to Table is about to be in full

bloom. Once vegetables and fruits are ready to be picked, the farm will be responsible for distributing several tons of produce to families in Sisters and beyond. Audrey Tehan, Director of the Seed to Table program, returned to her hometown of Sisters after  college and started the program literally from the ground up. Tehan began her career by managing a greenhouse on the Sisters Middle School grounds. Working with the school district, Tehan integrated a farm-to-table program that put the greenhouse-grown vegetables and fruits directly on school lunch tables districtwide.  “Growing your own food is both challenging and rewarding,” says Tehan, who grew up in a farming family, installing irrigation lines and using proper organic methods. Unfortunately, the middle school greenhouse was destroyed by a snow storm in 2013. This did not deter Tehan, however, as her dream had always been to oversee a successful community garden and share the importance of nutrition, agriculture and art with kids and adults. After securing several grants and planting the first seeds on her family’s land, the Seed to Table  vision began to take shape. It is now one of the most successful community outreach programs in the area.

14

Bend Lifestyle | May 2017


Seed to Table’s mission has been the same from the beginning—to increase the health and wellness of the Central Oregon Community by providing equal access to nutritious foods and  education in science, gardening and art. During the growing season, Seed to Table provides produce for close to 200 low income families each week. Families get access to the produce through the school district, the Sisters Kiwanis food bank, and a produce share providing a weekly bounty of fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables.  

“I love being a part of the community and working with the schools. The students are really becoming familiar with our program and have started making changes to their eating habits.” - Audrey Tehan The educational component of Seed to Table invites Central Oregonian children to work a minimum of four hours in farm-based education. Using a hands-on approach, kids learn to plant seeds, garden organically, and harvest in the high desert’s challenging environment. Kids also learn the importance of physical activity and supporting local farmers and products. 

KEEPING IT LOCAL

“I love being a part of the community and working with

the schools,” says a proud Tehan. “The students are really becoming familiar with our program and have started making changes to their eating habits.” The Sisters Community has been extremely supportive of Seed to Table both financially and physically, furthering the commitment of making their town a healthier place to live. In addition to private donations and classes, Seed to Table raises money by holding community events including the Rotary Club Hoedown and the Fall Harvest Dinner where they partner with local chefs to prepare a fourcourse, farm fresh meal.  SeedToTableSisters.org

Spring into Summer with Skin Safety MAY IS MELANOMA AWARENESS MONTH

ARTICLE GERALD PETERS JR., MD, FAAD, FACMS | PHOTOGRAPHY PROVIDED

W

ell, it's that time of year again! The grass is greener, the sky is bluer, the breeze is warmer, and the sun is stronger. However, with a little forethought and preparation you can help yourself and your family stay safe while you enjoy our beautiful Central Oregon outdoors. And remember, the ultraviolet rays that cause skin cancer also destroy elastic fibers and collagen in skin, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sallow, thin, discolored skin. So even if you don't feel motivated to practice sun precautions in order to avoid skin cancer, you’ll want to be "sun smart" to keep your skin youthful and healthy. The following tips will help you stay more youthful looking as well as safer from skin cancer.

- Staying out of the midday sun is crucial. Plan outdoor activities for morning and evening, avoiding sun exposure when your shadow is shorter than your body height (about 10 a.m. to about 4 p.m., but this varies with season and latitude). SEEK THE SHADE

SLIP AND SLAP - Slip on a long-sleeved shirt

and slap on a hat! Protective clothing is second only to outright avoidance of sun exposure. Cool, comfortable, and light-weight clothing is available now in wide selections of colors and styles, and is a great investment in your skin health.

16

Bend Lifestyle | May 2017

- Slop on sunscreen, every day, summer or winter, rain or shine. Make sure to use a truly effective sunscreen, and the best are "physical" blockers with zinc oxide (micronized) or titanium dioxide. A double application is best—to avoid skipped spots and using too little, resulting in a thin layer, and a lower-than-advertised Sun Protection Factor (SPF). SPF denotes how long you can be exposed to Ultraviolet (UV) rays before burning. SPF 50 provides about 98% protection, and SPF 100 gives about 99%. It is important to know that all UV radiation exposure is cumulative; a minute here and two minutes there will add up over time, causing severe damage over time even with smaller individual exposures.

SLOP

Please remember, tan skin is damaged skin. The proof of the pudding is in the tasting, and the proof of your sun protection is in the color of your skin. The skin color you were born with is your reference point. Although it is impossible to keep all of your skin as smooth and silky as a baby's bottom, the less sun damage, the better. If you find you still "get some color" despite your regimen, then you'll want to optimize your sun protection habits.

MONARCHY’S POLO The Bend Polo Club

P

olo may seem a bit too formal for our mountain bike-loving, beer-swigging town. However, we’re

athletic, we love our animals, and we’re drawn to wide open spaces. Therefore, polo may be the perfect fit for Central Oregon. General Manager Bruce DeKock and Certified USPA Instructor Henri du Toit, partners at the Bend Polo Club, are convinced that polo will catch on in Bend. The club is housed and matches take place at Camp Fraley Ranch in Bend.

It is an exhilarating, fun, sociable and truly amazing sport that uses incredible animals. - Rachele Gallinat

Polo traces its origin back to ancient Persia, while the first polo club was established in India in 1833. It requires the skills of both horse and rider who are dedicated to a set of rules. While open to hockey-style skirmishes, the game is adamant about the safety of both—perhaps leaning more toward the protection of the horse. DeKock discovered polo just four years ago following his daughter’s wish to learn to ride horses. Not wanting to be a dad on the sidelines, he joined in. After an introduction to polo, he was hooked. DeKock is also living proof that polo’s highfalutin image is unwarranted. Unless playing in a tournament, he sticks to jeans and a t-shirt to play. And there’s always tailgating involved!

“I am a poster child for the term, ‘anyone can play,’” DeKock relays. “At the end of the first season, I could barely get the horse going and hit the ball.” “I am able to combine all my passions— horses, being outside, being active, and playing a team sport,” adds Equine Manager and Chief Digital Marketing Officer Rachele Gallinat. “It is an exhilarating, fun, sociable and truly amazing sport that uses incredible animals.” Gallinat was a Sportsmanship Award-winning polo player at Oregon State University.

T

he record snowfall Old Man Winter dropped on Central Oregon is finally in the rearview mirror. In preparation for warmer tem-

peratures, back patios are being cleaned, gardeners are getting their hands dirty, and many of us are thinking about how to quench our upcoming summer thirst. For the cocktail lover who also enjoys being outside and using garden tools, Central Oregon is the place to be. True to its name, the High Desert is high in elevation and low in annual precipitation. Our dry soil and cold temperatures don’t allow for a long outdoor growing season, but local gardeners still prevail. Fortunately, many cocktail recipes utilize ingredients that grow well in the Central Oregon climate.  Growing sage, lavender and basil is possible utilizing pots dotted around your patio. A raised bed is an option if you don’t have the proper soil conditions in your yard and if you’re interested in growing additional ingredients like peppers for Bloody Marys or rhubarb for Rhubarb-Basil cocktails.  You don’t need much in the way of materials to construct a raised bed for your cocktail garden–-a four foot by four foot raised bed is more than adequate to grow all ingredients for summer sipping. A framed bed is more efficient than an unframed one, but more costly. Both require substantial quantities of soil and organic matter. A metal trough with drainage holes is a great alternative to constructing a raised bed out of wood.  For the cocktail gardener who is interested in starting plants from seeds, the Central Oregon Seed Exchange (COSE) is a great resource. Located inside Central Oregon Locavore in Bend, COSE provides local, organic, non-GMO and cold-climate hardy seeds originating in Central Oregon.   Central Oregon Seed Exchange SeedExchange.Weebly.com Central Oregon Locavore CentralOregonLocavore.org Oregon State University Master Gardeners  Extension.OregonState.edu Twist Cocktails TwistCocktails.com

teen years ago. The files now consist of “The Pile That I Need to Keep Handy” and “The Pile That I Probably Should File.” But, here’s how I keep it from getting completely out of control. 

5. MINIMIZING Don’t worry too much about organizing your closet. Just don’t have so much stuff. Make it a rule that when one thing comes in, one goes out. Or better yet, don’t get the new thing.

Lastly, try letting go. Decide that it’s ok to have those two anti-filing piles. You know which one is which. Be at peace. And, if you’re at the stage where you just can’t see a way out, it may be time to call a professional organizer to get you started. And yes, I still know how to set up a pretty functional library.
