SPRING HAS FINALLY SPRUNG! As the last dredges of winter make their way out, and we can finally begin to stop and smell the roses, it’s also a good time to remind ourselves to take the time to appreciate our beautiful planet. While April 22 is Earth Day, here at Brentwood Lifestyle, we are celebrating the planet all month long with our “Eco” issue. Here in this issue, we highlight the people and places in our community who are committing to keeping this planet beautiful—from local farms using sustainable practices and eco-friendly organizations giving back to the community to farmto-table restaurants focused on local ingredients to fuel-efficient vehicles for sale at local dealerships.

OUR SCHOOLS' MERITORIOUS RECYCLING PROGRAM IMAGINE A PROGRAM THAT COLLECTS SOLID WASTE FOR RECYCLING, EDUCATES OUR KIDS IN ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP AND GENERATES INCOME FOR OUR SCHOOLS. Well, imagine no more. This is the Keep Williamson Beautiful initiative, an educational and recycling “merit program” that continues to pick up steam—and trash—for cash! Open to all Williamson County  public schools, this year-round program offers students volunteer opportunities and the chance to earn merit points which translate into monetary awards for their schools. All 51 of Williamson’s public schools participate, and, in 2016-17, each received a merit-based award check totaling $50,000.  Jennifer Goscinak, Williamson County’s Recycling Specialist, serves as the Keep Williamson Beautiful executive director. Jennifer is quick to commend the efforts of others. “We have a very large volunteer base of dedicated parents, teachers, and school administrators and staff who make the merit program a success day after day, all yearround," she says. Schools have designated environmental coordinators who organize the programs and track volunteer hours. Volunteers are encouraged to tailor their merit program to their school's circumstances and, consequently, no two programs are the same. However, most schools have developed student “green teams” to implement their merit program. The results speak for themselves. “The education program through the Williamson County Recycle Center was invaluable," Girl Scout troop leader Kathy Caudill says. "Our girls are passionate about helping the Earth, and now they have more tools to help them do that and encourage others to do the same." Environmental stewardship is not limited to public schools. Jennifer is happy to partner with private schools on various programs, too. She encourages any school, organization or civic group in Williamson County to contact her at jenniferg@williamson-tn.org.

LIVING THE SWEET LIFE ON WILLIAMS HONEY FARM

WHILE NO LONGER AN ACTOR IN HOLLYWOOD, JAY WILLIAMS SURE PLAYS ONE IN REAL LIFE, CERTAINLY IN OUR NECK OF THE WOODS. For the past 10 years, Jay and his wife, Adrienne, have operated Williams Honey Farm, a local beekeeping enterprise that now boasts more than 100 hives. That buzz heard in the air this spring as Brentwood blossoms bloom? The chances are good that Jay and some of his 8 million busy bees have something to do with it! “When we got into beekeeping, we thought it would be cool to get some honey,” Jay says. “But it quickly turned into helping the bees way more than making any honey. These days only about 20 percent of our work is focused on honey production.” The rest of Jay’s work centers around maintaining hives for businesses, teaching school kids, performing conservation work and promoting pollinators. Not that there’s any lack of honey to harvest. In 2017, the Williams Honey Farm gathered approximately 2,000 pounds and won a major national award, the Good Food Award. This is perhaps one reason why the sweet stuff from Williams Honey Farm has been sampled by the past three U.S. presidents.  “I most enjoy empowering new beekeepers to jump in and raise bees themselves,” Jay says. “Our Facebook page, which contains how-to  videos, has grown from around 2,000 followers in 2014 to close to 30,000 followers this year. I love giving people the courage to jump in and try this fascinating hobby.” When asked if there are other ways to support Brentwood’s bees without maintaining an actual hive, Jay answers with an emphatic “yes!” “Plant a bee-friendly garden in your yard,” he advises. “Designate an area just for bees and butterflies. You’ll be amazed at what will show up. Also, stop spraying your grass for weeds. Avoid having perfectly manicured front lawns. These are beautiful wastelands  for pollinators—there is nothing of value for them to eat.” You don’t even need a yard to help the bees. “A business can sponsor one of our beehives!” Jay says. “We place the name and logo of the business on the hive and, each month, send out photo and video updates of how the hive is doing. Sponsors then share it on their own social media channels to show the world how they’re helping the bees. Funds collected from each beehive sponsorship further pollinator conservation efforts. Last year, we were able to give away over 350 seed bombs to area school children who planted their own native flowers in yards all over Middle Tennessee. We need as many sponsors as we can get!”  If you would like to help keep Brentwood blooming, visit WilliamsHoneyFarm.com to sponsor a hive!

PRODUCTS & GIFT IDEAS

When unwanted hives form in people’s

homes, Jay removes the bees to safe places to live. However, there is always some beeswax left over. Melted down and filtered and blended with organic and essential oils, the rescued wax becomes Lip Rescue, a pure and simple lip balm. Choose from peppermint, eucalyptus, coconut cream, summer honey and lavender. Purchase one lip balm for $4 or a three pack for $11 from WilliamsHoneyFarm.com/Shop.  OTHER ITEMS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE INCLUDE: + Double Gift Box, $40: An octagon-shaped gift box made of recycled kraft paper. It contains two jars of honey (wildflower and creamed), excelsior stuffing and one wooden honey dipper.   + Honey Straws, pack of 15, $9: Raw honey straws, great for on-the-go nutrition. Just bite one end, and the straw pops open. No mess, no fuss. + Seed Bombs, $5.99: Each bag contains five seed balls and one information card. Each seed ball contains a perennial flower seed encased in compost and clay.

LOCAL’S CHOICE

foodscaping, a growing revolution

MEET THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE ARTICLE WILLIAM HARWOOD

A REVOLUTION IS GAINING GROUND—LITERALLY—AROUND MORE AND MORE HOMES IN BRENTWOOD. It’s called “foodscaping,” a growing movement in front yard landscape design with plants as nutritious as they are beautiful. To get your garden growing in this tasteful direction, you could simply hire experts like Nashville Foodscapes to plant  fig trees, blueberry bushes, trifoliate orange, Kousa dogwoods and pawpaw trees, plants easy on the eyes with edible fruits. But, if you wish to plant your own foodscape,  consider  founder Jeremy Lekich’s four recommended tools. All tools can be purchased via Nashville Foodscapes,

NashvilleFoodscapes.com .

1. Italian Grape Hoe: This tool was designed to manage weeds in Italian grape orchards, and has the perfect angle to slice through weeds easily. | 2. Hand Pruners: The essential tool for pruning, trimming or dead-heading. | 3. Broadfork:  As an alternative to tilling established gardens, this large fork is stepped on by the user to go deep into the soil and aerate. It can also be used to work compost into the garden.

| 4. Angle Grinder: This

handheld, electrical unit makes fast work of sharpening tools. With a careful touch, shovels, hoes and axes can be nearly razor sharp. 34
