CAPTAIN PLANET FOUNDATION Captain Planet Foundation set a goal to have Project Learning Garden in 500 elementary and middle schools across metro Atlanta by 2020. Any teacher or principal is welcome to contact the Foundation at CaptainPlanetFoundation. org or 404.522.4215 to learn more. In addition to the physical raised bed gardens, schools also receive a mobile cooking cart (with a Vitamix!), a garden exploration kit, lesson supply kits, standards-based lessons across multiple subjects, teacher professional development and support during the summer months when school is out of session. Over the past four summers, close to 10,000 pounds of fresh garden produce has been donated to the Food Bank and its pantries around the city.

MASSELL'S BUCKHEAD BLUE RIBBON Former Atlanta Mayor Sam Massell, addressing the Buckhead Business Association with his annual “State of the Community” predictions, described the 28-square-mile affluent community as “surroundings spell sound success both fiscally and physically.”  Massell is the founding president of the umbrella-style influential nonprofit Buckhead Coalition. Massell provided an illustration he credited as being the success formula for the area, which was an equilateral triangle routing the skyline at the apex, with the first point identifying a half-dozen Buckhead-named civic and service nonprofit associations, and the other point listing an equal sample number of Buckhead-oriented news periodicals.  This, he says, explained the community’s wellbeing, with individuals active in the many organizations, and the publications reporting on their activities, with the skyline coming into being

“I want something pretty on my vanity counter and to carry in my purse. And, I want to know my mascara won’t run. So with the brands we’ve curated, not only are they efficient and work well in their category, they also look pretty and cover a range of prices. You can have a safe products that don’t cost an arm and a leg.” Aillea opened here in 2017 and now stocks more than 50 different brands, primarily from the US.  The company was founded by Kathryn Murray Dickinson, with two shops in Denver, and locations in Charleston and Raleigh, with a new shop underway in Charlotte.  “A lifetime beauty junkie and former executive in the beauty industry in New York City, my head started to spin when I tried to ‘clean up’ my beauty routine,” says Dickinson. "I  started on the journey of replacing every product I use  with one that works as well or better as the ones I  had been using, but had no toxic chemicals. The amount of green washing (having one organic ingredient but  lots of other chemicals and advertising as organic) and false advertising left me frustrated and incensed.” At Aillea, Becca and her team spend time with their customers, finding the right brands to meet any needs. “We can pick and chose from various lines to find the best for each person, for all types and skin color. And, there’s a variety of price ranges. It’s very accessible.” And, since the average woman will ingest seven pounds of lipstick in her lifetime, it makes sense to find a brand that won’t do harm.  The same goes for lotions and makeup. “Skin is the largest organ we have. Be careful with what you slather on,” urges Becca. With apps like Think Dirty and websites like EWG.org/SkinDeep, consumers can do their homework and search more than 80,000 products to find smarter choices for healthier living. At Aillea, the collection is curated, so customers don’t have to search very hard to know what is good for them and what helps make them even more beautiful. Aillea.com 3796 Roswell Rd 16

Orchard at Bro okhaven Visions for a Dementia-Friendly Georgia

A DEMENTIA-FRIENDLY COMMUNITY IS A CITY OR COUNTY WHERE MORE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND DEMENTIA AND THERE IS LESS FEAR OR AVOIDANCE OF IT. They are communities who choose to see dementia as a disability that changes over time and take action to ensure care partners and people living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias can continue to engage in their local community activities and be supported by efforts that create a “dementia capable” culture for families. In December, the Georgia Gerontology Society  awarded  five grants to foster adoption of dementiafriendly practices in Georgia. One of the grants was awarded to Orchard at Brookhaven, a new assisted living and memory care opening spring of 2019.  Robin Andrews Smith, Orchard's family advocate, along with Orchard’s 24

Owner Arkadiy Yakubov and Executive Director Leslie Finkley, had have a great interest in the Dementia Friendly Georgia initiative, as the soon to open assisted living and memory cares is prepared to will implement a more respectful mindset of service approaches when it comes to dementia.  The community’s vision is to provide families with more specific choice offerings along the wide continuum of dementia-related needs.  Currently, there is still great stigma, myth, and misunderstanding about the 5 million Americans living with some form of dementia. The condition is not just a memory disorder as many might think, but is, in fact, a collection of symptoms caused by more than 120 different kinds of medical conditions and is very unique person to person.   In 2020, the community plans to launch a membership program available for couples, caregiving people who are caring for a spouse in their own home but who would benefit from educational, dining, and activity offerings provided at the residential community.   OrchardAtBrookhaven.com CREATING A COMMUNITY FOR PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA INCLUDES: Raising awareness about Alzheimer’s and other dementias

HELPING WOMAN FROM THE INSIDE OUT

FOR MOST OF US, THE EYES ARE THE MOST CHERISHED OF OUR SENSES. Yet we potentially expose them to danger simply by going outside. Over time, the sun’s rays can seriously damage the eyes and surrounding skin since UV damage is cumulative over your lifetime. This exposure can sometimes lead to vision loss and conditions from cataracts and macular degeneration to eye and eyelid cancers. However, simple daily protective strategies will help keep our eyes and the sensitive skin around them healthy.  A good pair of sunglasses with UVA and

Here’s more: *Sunglasses are proven to protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays  from the sun, which helps prevent eye cancers, skin cancers and eye conditions like cataracts. *Covering the delicate skin around your eyes can help prevent sunburn, wrinkles and premature aging to keep you looking more youthful.

PARTING THOUGHTS

Dear Buckhaven, It’s our 7 year anniversary!

SEVEN YEARS AGO I WAS LAUNCHING MY FIRST PUBLICATION EVER WITH NO IDEA OF WHAT TO EXPECT OR HOW IT MIGHT BE RECEIVED BY OUR READERS. It was a proven formula of success in Kansas City but would a community publication mailed direct to a targeted family audience in specific areas of our city be accepted and would it have a positive and meaningful impact on the community? Seven years and four publications later I am so proud to see that the answer has been yes and I believe we have added some meaningful and substantial value to our community. Linking families, businesses, organizations and people together is always a positive thing but not always easy. We wanted to be a connector, where we could join people together to make a difference within the community and we now know we have and continue to do this.   We have supported charities around the community like the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities and  Polo in the Pines for pediatric cancer research.  I am very proud of our team, the culture and spirit in which we take on the day and our magazines and how we strive to make a difference for our community.   We have been blessed to be given this opportunity. Jim Newman, Publisher

It’s amazing how very fast the years flew by and here we are celebrating seven years producing the lovely BuckHaven Lifestyle magazine! I get to work with outstanding businesses and business owners every day, so having the pleasure of working with my clients makes me truly grateful. One of my fondest memories is when we heard that our editorial piece in BuckHaven on a wonderful charity, Wellspring Living, actually made a difference. The story touched a reader whose philanthropic group made a $100,000 grant, funding a new safe house. Wellspring Living, a non-profit charity that takes in women and teens from human trafficking, has become one that I donate to frequently. They provide women with clothes and sundry items that we all take for granted and also provide counseling, but most importantly a safe place and a way out. Karyn Slovin , Senior Account Manager 34
