Loads of fresh fruit and warm biscuits bookended a breakfast buffet with fresh ground coffee from sponsor, Georgia’s own small farmer coffee roaster, Cafe Campesino served piping hot all day. On one of the many “field trips” offered, I visited the bucolic Bella Luna Sheep & Wool Co in Tignall, Georgia. While the others talked about best practices for raising sheep (“I love birthing lambs. I get right up there and bring that baby into the world…”) I breathed in the damp mossy air and decided I needed to get out of the city and live on a farm. These people touch the earth and the earth touches them every single day.  At Happy Wife Farm in Modoc, S.C., a school bus has been repurposed into a chicken coop, a moveable

WHEN SOMEONE YOU LOVE IS SICK, DON’T YOU WISH YOU HAD A MAGIC WAND TO CAST OUT THE PAIN, DISMISS THE GERMS FOREVER AND BANISH THE BAD NEWS? When 11-year old Mary Tipton Carter of Brookhaven was at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, she could have used a magic wand during her treatment for ovarian cancer. Instead, she stepped into the role of fairy godmother, constructing wands out of pipe cleaners, visiting other children who were sick, granting them a bit of hope with their own magic wand. Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance Executive Director Doug Barron heard about the young ovarian cancer patient at CHOA and went for a visit. From there, the two developed a unique friendship and productive collaboration. MT is a huge Harry Potter fan and convinced Doug if they were going to be friends, he would have to read the entire Harry Potter series.  So he did! While reading, Doug noticed a common element in all of the stories. Every character possessed a wand that would help them in times of need and conflict.  An amateur woodworker, Doug decided to design and craft a magic wand  for MT. He turned to “Nana’s Tree,” the Japanese Maple that his children planted when their grandmother passed away from ovarian cancer in 2007 and chose a branch to work with. “The first wand I made was very special,” says Doug.  “The handle and wand separate exposing a secret compartment that can hold a special wish or spell.” Thus the name, “MT’s Wizardly Wands with Get Well Spells.” Now, an ovarian cancer survivor, MT creates gift bags for children being treated at the AFLAC Cancer Center Inpatient Unit at CHOA - Scottish Rite with information about these special wands that are then distributed by the AFLAC Donations Coordinator. “MT hopes the wands may bring some magic, a smile, and some happiness into their lives,” says Doug.  Together, Doug and MT have created a magical friendship that proves caring and creativ-

A GROWING HERITAGE AT SMITH FAMILY FARM

18

BuckHaven Lifestyle | April 2018


ARTICLE CORINNE CUMMINGS PHOTOGRAPHY CORINNE CUMMINGS AND ATLANTA HISTORY CENTER

TUCKED INSIDE THE BUSTLING ENCLAVE OF BUCKHEAD A SPECIAL FARM IS BEING GROWN TO INTERPRET HISTORY. Visitors to the Atlanta History Center’s Smith Family Farm and Goizueta Gardens can experience a slice of American farm life as it may have been in Atlanta in the 1860s.  One of Atlanta’s oldest surviving farmhouses, the restored Smith family house was built in the 1840s and is made up of their modest living quarters as well as a small separate building out back which housed their kitchen. The gardens that surround the home—made up of a small flower garden, fenced kitchen garden, field crops, a small orchard, and the enslaved workers’ garden—are just one small part of the six gardens that make up the 33-acre Goizueta Gardens. The heirloom crops, varieties of flowers, and preserved woodland are all grown and tended to while remaining true to the time period. (Even the grass in the meadow is a variety that would have been growing on a Georgia farm in the 19th Century.) The view from the front of the Smith house, at what is now 130 West Paces Ferry Rd, shows the contrast of the area’s past and present, the St. Regis towers in the background. The front garden is blooming with Johnny-Jump-Ups and Sweet shrub.  Emily Roberts, an urban agriculturist for the Atlanta History Center works alongside curator Valerie VanSweden to help research and grow historic plants, paying close attention to how and why they were grown and used. “Everything at the farm is a condensed version of what the Smith family would have had,” Roberts explains, “So, in the field we grow the cash crops like cotton and corn and sweet potatoes that the Smith family is documented as growing at that time.” “The kitchen garden is the garden that would have fed the Smith family,” Roberts says. “It would have been worked by the enslaved Africans who lived here, but it would have been overseen by Mrs. Smith.” The kitchen garden yields radishes, garlic, parsnips, onions, kale, and dill, thyme and rosemary—all heirloom varieties that date back to the 1860s or earlier. Herbs with medicinal uses like Feverfew (used to treat migraines) Lemon balm (heal wounds) and Lovage (digestion) are also growing here. A makeshift trellis, made by Roberts, is ready for the Dwarf Grey Sugar peas to grow and thrive. “They weren’t doing any sort of fancy trellising in 1864, they were just cutting boughs and then weaving the sticks together to make the pea trellis,” Roberts says. Though the kitchen garden is grown in a more traditional-style, with neat rows of vegetables and herbs, in the enslaved people’s garden it is a much smaller area, and would have been in area that would not have been considered useful—sloping spaces, usually shadier, with less drainage.  The farm is also home to heritage breed animals including Gulf Coast Sheep, Standard Bronze turkeys, and Plymouth Rock and Rhode Island Red chickens. (Don’t worry. All of the animals have names so no one plans to serve them any time soon.) On a recent visit, children could be heard squealing with delight as they ran into Dodger, the farm’s resident cat who roams freely at the farm.  A census report from 1850 revealed that the Smith Family, made up of Robert Smith, his wife Elizabeth, their six children, and 13 enslaved workers had 15 sheep which yielded them 33-pounds of wool that year. The modern-day version of the Smith farm is also highly prolific: The hens laid 1,400 eggs in 2017. Turkeys Tallulah and Hiawassee laid over 250. The food made here is only used to demonstrate cooking techniques, but sometimes if they yield a bumper crop of collards or cabbage they’ll donate to the local food bank, though that is rare.

Mullein, which grows wide green leaves and blooms yellow flowers, is grown in both the kitchen garden and the enslaved people’s gardens at the Smith Family Farm. It is a closely documented herb that African Americans and formerly enslaved people used to help with asthma, coughing, or respiratory issues. They would smoke the leaves or boil them in water to soak their feet or joints for use as an anti-inflammatory or to provide pain relief. Mullein was also used by the indigenous communities of Georgia and was historically used to treat colds and upper-repertory infections. It was sometimes used as an astringent to disinfect or even to help heal ear ailments.  

Seasonal cocktails, handmade pasta, perfectly cooked steaks and fresh salads expertly prepared using the nest ingredients. For reservations call 404.844.4810

DRIVER’S NOTEBOOK

ECO-FRIENDLY 4-DOOR

THE 2018 TOYOTA AVALON HYBRID LIMITED ARTICLE DENNIS MALCOLM BYRON

PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF NISSAN AND TOYOTA

BASE PRICE: $42,800; $44,697 with all options and additional expenses as reviewed GAS MILEAGE: 40 city/39 highway/40 combined For more information, visit Toyota.com.

TO GARNER THE CLASSIFICATION AS “ECO-FRIENDLY,” THERE IS A VERY POPULAR MISCONCEPTION THAT AN AUTOMOBILE HAS TO BE SMALL, CONSERVATIVE IN DESIGN, AND LACKING LUXURIOUS AMENITIES. The 2018 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited successfully disproves these assumptions. This large, four-door sedan immediately catches the eye with its aerodynamic frame, tinted windows, curvaceous grille, 17-inch alloy wheels, a power moonroof, HID quadrabeam headlights and long wheelbase to comfortably fit five adults.  The interior maintains the Avalon’s attractiveness thanks to plush leather, ventilated seating; a leather-trimmed steering wheel with multi-function controls;  a push-button start complete with a smart key system for effortless departure; power rear-window sunshades; and tri-zone climate control with rearseat heating also equipped with ventilation.  Technologically savvy, this Hybrid’s seven-inch touchscreen vibrantly displays integrated navigation and a fully stocked App Suite, plus a USB port and Bluetooth connectivity amplified by an Entune Premium JBL audio system with 11 GreenEdge speakers to ensure optimal entertainment and convenience.  Acknowledging all passengers are precious cargo, there is a plethora of safety features as well. Everything from Toyota’s stellar Safety Sense System featuring a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert with steering assist, to a state-of-the-art pre-collision system including smart stop braking to keep the stress levels of drivers low regarding possible dangers on the road. This collective has earned a five-star safety ranking.  With electric power steering conducting three available driving modes—EV (totally electric for short drives and reduced

LITTLE

GECKO

SCAMPERED

ACROSS THE SUN-DRENCHED WALL AROUND THE POOL WHERE I LAY READING THE THIRD NOVEL OF MY SPRING BREAK VACATION IN SEAGROVE, FLORIDA. Besides the song of a resident male cardinal serenading his girl, the afternoon was still and quiet. Just the way I like it. Sure, the beach a few blocks away across 30A was popping, and tan teens were bouncing off each other in Seaside, down the street, but I didn’t hear boo. I heard myself sigh and settled into a state of doing nothing while being ok with it.  You know how hard that is. The kids were happy to toggle between spring break antics, skimboarding and playing video games or watching The Office mindlessly in the super sweet family room. (After all, it was THEIR break, too.) My husband had finished a few chapters while stretched out on the mammoth white twill slipcovered sofa and biked up to Goatfeathers Seafood Market for fresh fish for the grill on the patio later. I was willing to commit to moving from my padded lounger to the other side of the deck for dinner. Followed by a moonlit walk on the beach. Later.  We found Heavenly Hideaway on VRBO. It is an unlikely 30A rental, void of any suburb-like proximity to the gigantic cookie-cutter hulks that fill the busy roads near the beach. It’s tucked away on a corner lot behind tall palms and thoughtful landscaping, just four blocks east of Seaside in Old Seagrove, a neighborhood that still feels like somewhere you’d like to spend more than a few weeks. The shady dirt roads are narrow, quiet and inviting. Perfect for an after-dinner walk.  Speaking of dinner, while there’s no shortage of dining and drinking destinations at the string along 30A (Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, Seagrove, Seaside, Watercolor, Grayton), the newly renovated kitchen at this house makes it easy (and even fun) to stay in and cook. One can slice, dice and peel while daydreaming (be careful), watching the sun dance on the pool through the floor to ceiling sliders at the other end of the room. The skylights over the gas range keeps the efficient kitchen flooded with light, too.  With three en suite bedrooms, plus two twins in the media room, this family-friendly ranch home feels more like a resort than a rental. Book it if you can! VRBO.com/434331 April 2018 | BuckHaven Lifestyle

PAN-ROA STED CHICKEN WITH SPRING VEGGIES CHEF JOHN ADAMSON, AMERICAN CUT BUCKHEAD

IN G R E D I E N T S : + 1 Whole Chicken with skin cut in half + 1 Bunch Asparagus  + 1 Artichoke Heart  + 1 Small Vidalia Onion  + 2 Small Gold Potatoes  + 1 Clove Garlic Sliced Thin + 1 Whole Lemon + 2 Tbsp. Whole Salted Butter + Vegetable Oil, Salt, and Pepper as Needed

PR E P A R A T I O N : 1. Heat a large skillet on high heat on the stove top for the chicken and boil a generous amount of water for the vegetables. 2. When the pan is hot, pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper. Add 3oz oil to the pan and gently place chicken skin side down in the oil. You can weigh the chicken down with another pan to create a crispier skin if desired. Place the pan in the oven to roast through. Check the chicken intermittently to avoid overcooking. You should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees (8-12 minutes depending on the size of the chicken). 3. Using a basket, blanch the asparagus in the boiling salted water for approx. 2 minutes, remove, and cool quickly in ice water then set aside. 4. Peel the artichoke and repeat the blanching process same as the asparagus then place in ice water. 5. Place the whole potatoes washed with skin on and cook until 85% cooked through. Remove from the water and place on a plate to cool. 6. Slice the cooled asparagus on a bias and cut the artichoke into eighths. Press on the potatoes with the flat side of a knife to crush slightly keeping mostly whole. 7. Heat a separate sauté pan on the stove top with 2 oz. oil and add the potatoes. Cook on medium-high heat until the potatoes start to crisp. It is important not to move the potatoes to ensure crispiness. Season with salt and pepper and place in the oven. 8. When the potatoes are crispy remove from oven and add the whole butter. It will start to melt quickly in the hot pan. Then toss in the sliced asparagus and artichoke. Quickly toss and season to taste with salt and pepper.  9. Spoon the mixture gently onto a serving plate. Squeeze lemon juice over it then slice the chicken and place on top.  10.

PARTING THOUGHTS

BEING GREEN ARTICLE ERIC MONCRIEF, THE GREEN GUY

HELLO EVERYONE! Spring is here and with that comes spring cleaning of our homes and workspaces. While making your space tidy you can also make a decision to help our environment and recycle those unwanted items like clothes, electronics, metals, cardboard, plastic and paint. With the annual Earth Day Celebration at Georgia Tech coming on April 20 and Earth Share Georgia's many events throughout the month of April, I would like to encourage you to begin small subtle changes in your daily routine to recycle more at home and at work. Turn off lights when you leave the room, maybe even begin composting your food scraps. Farmer D Organics has cool compost frames and systems and can help you get set up.  If you don't have a garden that would benefit from the beautiful humus soil that composting eventually generates, donate your gold to a community garden or local school garden. Before you know it with small steps your modified new behavior will have you on the path to living more sustainable. Keep Atlanta Beautiful is  the recycling center and drop off
