Landenberg Life Spring 2017 edition
By J. Chambless
In this issue, we spotlight numerous Landenberg residents who are making great contributions to the world around them.
One example: Landenberg native Jen Samuel has a passion for saving elephants. She started a nonprofit organization called Elephants DC that works to prevent the extinction of elephants. We spotlight the work of the New Garden Township Historical Commission, a group of dedicated citizens who work to protect, preserve, and celebrate the history of the area. We profile Lindsay Schmittle, who runs Gingerly Press, an old-fashioned printing business out of her parents' garage. Schmittle is hiking along the Appalachian Trail, where she is looking for inspiration for future graphic arts work. We feature a story about “Drop In On Nature,” a program offered by The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County. In this preschool program, children spend one or two mornings a week on a private, seven-acre property in Kennett Township known at the Bucktoe Preserve Annex. In the Q & A, we talk to Meghan Bell, who owns Red Bell Farms with her husband, Kevin. We talk to Meghan about how her love of horses led them to start boarding horses and providing event training and riding lessons on the farm. We also look at the history and deep roots of Landenberg's United Methodist Church, a house of worship that dates back 170 years and is as important as ever to the community. We hope that you enjoy this issue of Landenberg Life. While the title of the magazine has changed slightly from the one that was used for the first ten years of its life, we still have the same commitment to bring you the best stories we can about the Landenberg community. You can now find more stories about Landenberg and the other communities in our coverage area at www.chestercounty.com.
