Leah Kostamo

Leah Kostamo is the author of Planted: a Story of Creation, Calling and Community. She works alongside her husband Markku to show God’s love for all creation through the ministry of A Rocha. Together they started the first Christian environmental center in Canada, which over the past twelve years has welcomed thousands of visitors and interns who have rolled up their sleeves to grow organic vegetables, restore salmon streams and inspire school children. Margaret Atwood, writing in Sojourners, said of Leah and Markku, “If all Christians were like them, ours would be a radically different world.”

Leah makes her home in the Little Campbell Watershed and shares life with five other families (and a myriad of chickens) on Kingfisher Farm near Vancouver, BC.
