EAC Presentation, Lundale Farm: Tonight

The East Nantmeal EAC on Monday April12 at 7 pm, will host a presentation by Lundale Farm via zoom

The Forestry Committee of Lundale Farm was formally recognized in November 2018 after months of work was completed by Drs. Michael Haas and Kevin Hicks to remove Ailanthus trees throughout Lundale Farm, concentrating around the orchard area and the bake house at 2501 Pottstown Pike. The forestry committee was charged with both controlling the Spotted Lanternfly and Ailianthus tree populations at the farm, and developing and implementing a sustainable forestry management plan that would recognize the exceptional resource that the forest is to the farm and provide recommendations for how to best manage the forest for future generations.After more than a year of research and interviews, Lundale Farm contracted with Jacob Shultz, who wrote our 2019 Lundale Farm Sustainable Forestry Management Plan. 
Now in its fourth year, the Forestry Committee of Lundale Farm is actively working to implement the Sustainable Forestry Management Plan. During our April 12 presentation, we will share more about the mission of Lundale Farm, elements of our sustainable forestry management plan, and research and experiences we’ve gained from developing and implementing the management plan. We hope you’ll join us.

Reminder: Road Cleanup Day this Saturday

Township clean up day, this Saturday. People can pick up yellow trash bags and safety vests at the township but we weren’t able to get any gloves. The road crew will only pick up yellow bags on Monday on township roads.  If you use a different colored trash bag or live on Fairview, 401 or 345 you can bring your trash to the township and leave by the salt shed or call to ask if the road crew can pick it up if you have a lot.

This Monday: The Environment and Our Health

Never in recent history have we been more concerned about our health.  The connections between environmental health and our own personal health are often overlooked, misunderstood or downplayed.  Dr. Maany will discuss how sustainable land use and habitat conservation benefits our health.  Specifically, she will address various infectious diseases such as Lyme disease, West Nile virus, Covid-19, and more.  She will also draw connections between environmental health and our mental well-being.

Presenter:  

Veda Maany, MD is an emergency medicine physician, practicing for over 16 years, with a strong personal interest in environmental health. Her mission is to bring environmental issues to the forefront of the medical field.  She aims to incorporate environmental issues into clinical practice as she believes that the health of the environment is a reflection of our society’s overall health and well-being. She is an active member of her township’s Environmental Advisory Committee and the mother of two environmental enthusiasts.
This presentation will be on February 22, 7:00 pm.  You can register for this program at east.nantmealeac@gmail .com

Chester County Climate Action Plan; March 4, 2021

The Chester County Planning Commission, working in conjunction with the Chester County Environmental and Energy Advisory Board, will be presenting a draft of the county’s updated Climate Action Plan during a public Zoom meeting on Thursday, March 4.

The updated Climate Action Plan will provide a current greenhouse gas emissions inventory, as well as action plans for reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency throughout the county.

The Climate Action Plan establishes a blueprint for how the county, municipalities, businesses and other stakeholders can reduce their carbon footprint. Work on the plan began in the fall of 2019 and updates and expands on the county’s original 2010 Greenhouse Gas Reduction Report. 

Meeting attendees will be presented with an overview of the plan and proposed actions for addressing climate change, followed by a question and answer session and opportunities for public comment. 

We invite you to join us for this meeting to discuss the draft plan and provide your feedback! We also invite you to share this meeting information with others. Attached is a press release providing more information about the meeting, as well as a partner toolkit and graphic with suggested language for sharing.
