ACCORDING TO DICTIONARY.COM THE WORD ECO MEANS “A COMBINING FORM REPRESENTING ECOLOGY, IN THE FORMATION OF COMPOUNDS (ECOSYSTEM; ECOTYPE); ALSO WITH THE MORE GENERAL SENSE “ENVIRONMENT,” “NATURE,” “NATURAL HABITAT” (ECOCIDE; ECOLAW; ECOPOLITICS).” When the April theme was determined to be Eco, I had a lot of ideas of what we should feature. I researched some of the delicious restaurants in town that serve fresh local ingredients like Juniper, Bramble Breakfast & Bar and Elote’ Café. That made me hungry and decided with summer around the corner, maybe getting a little exercise would be a better alternative. So, I focused on some of the beautiful parks in the Tulsa area with their gorgeous flower beds and walking trails such as Redbud Park, Tulsa Botanic Garden, and the Zoo. I found out there are numerous parks in the area and couldn’t decide on which one to feature! Did you know that Broken Arrow has the Ray Harral Nature Center? It’s a 40 acre park with a suspension bridge, arboretum and a Nature Center with live and mounted displays, animal hides, information on plants, trees, flowers, birds, bees, fish and various movies on wildlife? Reading about the parks got me in the mood to plant my

When I really thought about what Eco meant to me, I had fond memories of when my oldest daughter belonged to the recycling club in elementary school at McAuliffe (Union Schools). I remember her excitement after going on field trips to recycling centers and one day they were all given a tree to plant. 25 years later, she recycles everything and very much cares about the environment. The future of ‘eco’ depends

on what children learn today. Up With Trees just started a new program in the Tulsa public schools and plans to expand to other schools in the area. How exciting for these students! You can read about it on page 31. We also decided to feature A New Leaf. It’s a great cause but there is so much more to it as you can see from the cover photo. The photographer captured a moment in time when the writer was interviewing the marketing director. I hope the story pulls at your heart as it did mine.

NATIVE AMERICAN CUISINES: TRADITIONS AND CONTEMPORARY CONTEXTS 

What’s the connection between cultural wellness and bodily health? Can a change in what people eat change not only the way they feel, but the way they understand their history, their heritage, and their future. This symposium draws  together native chefs, documentary filmmakers, food historians, policy experts, and political activists to  explore the cultural and health effects of indigenous cuisines. Event starts on Friday, April 13  at 6 p.m. with a lecture and meal prepared by Ben Jacobs, an Oklahoma native and one of the  innovative chefs behind Denver's Tocabe restaurant. On Saturday, April 14, at 8 a.m., panel discussions and film screenings  focus on different aspects of native food culture, ranging from the mental and physical health effects of indigenous cuisines to the work of the historians, seed keepers, and chefs recovering and reinventing traditional

of a fountain of youth goes back as far as history records have been kept. It is the talk of myths and legends dating back to at least the days of Alexander the Great. It is no surprise that many people the world over want to stay young and healthy as long as possible while maintaining their youthful energy. The Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon thought he would find this fountain in what is present day Florida, but even he would be shocked by what researchers found in only four known water springs today. Nobel Prize nominee Dr. Garth Nicolson, has been researching the properties of these water sources after hearing many claims these waters held healing benefits when people drank from it. These claims go back centuries, and even wealthy celebrities have been known to visit these unique springs for their special benefits. The question is, could these springs truly be some type of “fountain of youth” or healing water source? This started a journey of discovery unlike anything he could imagine. “What we found was amazing, and we knew this was a life changing discovery,” Nicolson says. What his research uncovered after multiple tests from these sources was shocking. The water samples taken revealed these springs have one specific element to the water not found anywhere else naturally on earth. These waters contain large amounts of hydrogen. According to Nobel Prize winning scientist Albert Szent-Györgyi, hydrogen is considered the most powerful known anti-oxidant on earth. The significance of this discovery revolutionizes everything we know about water and its relationship with anti-oxidants. The scientific studies demonstrating the benefits of anti-oxidants are unprecedented when it comes to the number of benefits. Some of these benefits are the protection of cells in the body from dangerous free radicals that age our cells. These free radicals oxidize our cells internally much the same way metals rust and apples turn brown when exposed to air. These free radicals are found in our environment and the food we eat everyday thus leading to increased aging of the body, with some becoming chronically ill. Drinking hydrogen enriched water, floods the cells of the body with anti-oxidants and protects them from the aging process. These anti-oxidants can also be found in a host of fruits and vegetables, but water is the most effective delivery system for these anti-oxidants to reach our cells because of the molecular properties of hydrogen in the water. Japanese scientists have also taken note of this discovery, and the people of Japan experience some of the best health and longevity of any country in the world. One company has even pioneered a patented way to have this hydrogen rich anti-oxidant water for home use. The device was also awarded numerous patents world-wide, and has produced such great results it is even used in hospitals across Japan. It is estimated that as many as 20% of households in Japan now also use this exciting technology. Using their innovative process, anyone can now have access to this life changing water and experience the benefits. Many individuals that have struggled for years with the debilitating pain from gout, arthritis, inflammation, diabetes, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, and a host of other issues have reported amazing benefits from drinking this unique water. Some have reported feeling younger and having more energy throughout the day. Others have reported healthier skin and hair after using this special water. After experiencing some of these benefits first hand Brent Nicholson and his wife Rhonda founded a local green country company called IO Pure. They are very passionate about helping others and spreading the word about this unique water “I find a lot of people are worried about what is in their water and whether it is safe to drink or not.” “I also find others are looking for relief from chronic issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, and arthritis,” Brent says.

two older technologies to create a new one all its own. It’s taking combustion engines and electricity, both of which have been used for over a century, and mixing the two to make an efficient and ecofriendly driving machine for the future. There are actually two different types of vehicles now using this technology. There is the electric car which uses electric motors and battery packs to completely operate. Then there are hybrids which use both the electric motors and the traditional combustion engine and gasoline. As for how the hybrids work, a typical hybrid car uses the electric engine during driving when the gasoline engine is least efficient. These would be times such as idling, parking, slow driving, etc. An electric engine works by drawing electricity from a battery and then uses that energy for creating mechanical power. BMW has recently come out with its latest technology in the hybrid field with the arrival of the new BMW 330e which offers customers another innovative route to driving pleasure. With its plug-in hybrid drive system, the latest BMW 3 Series variant combines the dynamic flair for which the brand is renowned with the option of driving on electric power alone and the promise of unbeatable efficiency over longer distances. The BMW  330e therefore brings together high-quality dynamics and extremely low fuel consumption thus less of a carbon footprint.  Contact BMW of Tulsa at 918.663.4444 or BMWofTulsa.com .

HOW A NEW LEAF IS CREATING INDEPENDENCE AND CHANGING LIVES

Tulsa Lifestyle | April 2018


ARTICLE SARAH SOON | PHOTOGRAPHY KELLY BROWN-ELLY PHOTOGRAPHY

IMAGINE BUYING FRESH PRODUCE OR BOUNTIFUL FLOWERS WHILE GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY? Meet A New Leaf (ANL), a hidden gem, ready to be discovered. This non-profit organization educates, employs and equips individuals with developmental disabilities. Their mission is to provide these individuals (including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder) with vocational and residential services to increase independence and individual choices. Although Oklahoma has approximately 60,000 individuals with a developmental disability, only 2,500 are served by the state. And 85% of those with developmental disabilities are unemployed, a statistic ANL works hard to lower. Their vocational services are largely focused on horticulture. Studies have shown horticulture therapy helps those with developmental disabilities improve cognitive abilities, task initiation, memory, stress reduction and emotional bonding. “We’re providing a safe community for clients to learn, grow and feel successful,” shares Kevin Harper, ANL’s Marketing Director. ANL has six greenhouses, two retail centers and a farm. In their greenhouse, clients work with job coaches to learn skills such as planting and cultivating bedding and house plants, succulents and poinsettias. They sell items at the retail and wholesale level. Local businesses allow ANL’s clients to come to their offices and sell to employees; thus, clients integrate with society. This past Valentines, they delivered over 160 (more than double last year) dozen roses to customers; over Christmas, they sold 4,400 poinsettias.  At Blooming Acres, ANL’s CSA farm, clients grow vegetables and customers sign up for their share during the growing season. Once a week, clients, who take great pride and ownership of their work, enjoy delivering produce to customers. And half of the produce goes to community food banks and food deserts— teaching clients to give back.  Although Blooming Acres doesn’t have an organic certification, they follow rigid standards. “We naturally grow everything and follow organic guidelines, mainly for the safety of our clients,” Harper shares. ANL also helps clients not interested or incapable of working in horticulture. Clients bag 3,000 pounds of dog food for shelters every week. Others work at Meals on Wheels, on a wholesale crew daily selling flower arrangements to flower shops across the state, and at a mobile nursery going to businesses to sell products. Some provide janitorial services for churches and business; others make jewelry. Harper always seeks new opportunities for clients to work and receive a paycheck. Their latest opportunity is an agrihood in Owasso. A private donor gifted them fifty acres of land and ANL’s goal is to break ground in 2020. Here, clients will live and integrate with society —they’re opening the agrihood to the general public. Another ANL program is Autism Works, a community based, pre-vocational program for youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Autism Works helps middle and high school students in the Tulsa public schools make the transition to adulthood, higher education and/or employment through teaching social skills in a classroom setting.

No matter what arm ANL is involved in, their focus is always: what’s best for the client. Just visit their greenhouse to see clients having fun, learning skills, and growing in their horticultural knowledge. And through integration, clients are spreading joy to the community. “Everyday

(See sidebar below.) + Sign up for the CSA on their website, ANewLeaf.org under Blooming Acres. + Donate online at their website ANewLeaf.org/donate.  Most of the profits from selling items go to providing wages for clients and purchasing items for the program. They rely on grants and donations to support the organization. + Sign up for a tour of their greenhouse at ANewLeaf.org.  Call ANL at 918.451.1491 for more info.

CULINARY CREATIONS

KIRIN ASIAN CUISINE AND SUSHI

Tulsa Lifestyle | April 2018


NESTLED AWAY IN SOUTH TULSA ON THE NORTH EAST CORNER OF 81ST AND MINGO, KIRIN SERVES DELICIOUS ASIAN CUISINE AND SUSHI. The plates are a delight to the eye as well as the palate as each one has been carefully crafted to perfection. Kirin offers a wide array of appetizers from egg rolls to chicken lettuce wraps. They serve traditional to more Americanized entrees and sushi with the freshest of ingredients along with home-made sauces. Kirin’s Chef Daniel has always had an obsession with high quality foods which lead him to his love of making Sushi. Inspired by the Masters of sushi who have come before him, he works diligently to make sure that every aspect of his sushi is perfect. Every morning he starts off with two hours just to make rice and then inspects the fish for the day. He concludes with making his own sauces to complement his creations. Nowhere is this more apparent than in his Dynamite roll. This roll is made to show off the balance of ingredients, every flavor unique throughout the roll and yet coming together for a perfect experience. 

KIRIN’S DYNAMITE ROLL IT E M S N E E D E D : + Bamboo Rolling Mat + 1 sheet of Nori + 2/3 cup of sushi rice + 2 .5 cm slices of eel + 4-5 pieces of thick sliced cucumber + 1 tablespoon of tempura crunch + 2 pieces of sliced avocado + 2 pieces of cream cheese  + 2  .5 cm slices of salmon + 2  .5 cm slices of tuna + 1 tablespoon of spicy crab salad + Eel sauce

TO P R E P A R E : 1. Bake eel for 1 minute at 450 degrees. 2. Spread the sushi rice evenly across the sheet of Nori. 3. Flip the nori over onto the bamboo rolling mat so the rice is face down in order to make an inside out roll. 4. Place eel, cucumber, avocado, cream cheese, and crunch on the Nori sheet 5. Use the bamboo rolling mat to create your roll. You should end

up with the rice on the outside in order to hold the fish in place. 6. Place salmon and tuna slices across the top of the roll with spicy crab salad in-between.

UP WITH TREES OFFERS TREE SCHOOL

MANY OF US KNOW ABOUT UP WITH TREES AND THE WONDERFUL SERVICES THEY PROVIDE FOR OUR CITY. Most would say Up With Trees is known for planting trees all along the roads of our city.  Which is true and just one of the wonderful things this organization does for our community.  Did you know Up With Trees offers Tree School? Tree School is an amazing program that Up With Trees offers to our local schools systems. Tulsa public school is one of the first school systems the program has started in, but plans to expand to other local schools systems in the future.   I was recently asked to help teach the Tree School program with a good friend of mine John Kahre and was delighted to be part of such an amazing program. The program is currently being taught to 4th and 7th grade students and some of the classes have been adjusted for High schools students as well.

Cherlyn Reeves, education coordinator for Up With Trees, speaks to seventh graders at Carver Middle School about preserving the health of trees on their campus. 32

Tulsa Lifestyle | April 2018


During the program we visit the school on four different occasions, during each one hour session we teach the students very important information such as the benefits of trees, tree biology, we  also teach  students the importance of planting the right tree in the right place and to make sure not to plant trees under or near power lines.  We then move on to the importance of caring for trees, making sure trees are healthy and how to tell if the tree is not healthy. This is usually a fun day because we take the students outside to observe the trees they have on their school campus.   Students get to measure the trees, touch the trees, and we discuss the shape and size that each tree is expected to

be and if it is planted in the right place or not. Then students get in groups and inspect the trees for pests or disease, and if any of the trees are in need of removal.    On our last class session we do a recap and then we give the students a small tree identification book and ask them to tell us what tree in the book is their favorites.  The students then get to make posters about their favorite tree, telling us fun facts about the trees and why this is their favorite tree.     I really loved some of the answers some of the children would give about why this is their favorite tee.  Some were the usual – “I like this tree because the leaves are shaped

like a heart” or “We like this tree because the leaves change colors in the fall”. But one of my favorites I would keep hearing was “We like this Maple tree because it gives us maple syrup”.  I always just had to laugh at this answer.  After the final tree school session is over the students get to plant trees on the school campus.  This is usually an interesting day where we see the students asking all sorts of questions about the trees being planted, what kind of tree is that, how big will it get, where are we planting this tree, is this a fruit tree?   So exciting to see how much the students have learned about trees in just a short amount of time.    I am thrilled to be part of the Tree School program and hope to continue teaching it for many years to come.  Trees are such an important part of our lives and I love teaching others all about trees and the important role that trees play in our lives.
