By Richard Gaw
In the Fall/Winter 2015 issue of Landenberg Today, we the day with farmer and lifetime New Garden resident Pownall Jones, who shared his life stories and some of the hidden history of New Garden. We profile artist Chad Cortez Everett, who combines his artistic talents with a powerful message to create talked-about canvases that convey color and meaning. We also introduce our readers to Rachel Gillespie, who is a freshman at Ringling College of Art and Design, a prestigious art school in Sarasota, Fla. The Avon Grove High School graduate tells us about how she has wanted to be an animator since she was five years old, and about how she is currently pursuing her dream of working for Disney Animation Studios. The subject of the Q& A is Dave Yake, who is the public face of the Save Our Water group in Landenberg, which was formed to block the Artesian water company's efforts to pump water out of a local aquifer and send it into Delaware. We also talk to Bruce Latshaw, the pastor of the Barn Vineyard Church, and Ben Quintana, the pastor of Christ Church at the Grove, about how the Avon Grove Ministerium brings together Christian leaders from 20 local churches to share faith and fellowship. Churches and places of worship dot Landenberg's landscape. In the photo essay, photographer Carla Lucas gives readers a chance to identify the area's houses of worship from just one or two details that she photographed.
