Meet Leah


Hi! I’m Leah.  I’m an earthkeeper and storyteller. I’m passionate about helping others live lightly on the earth from a place of joy and hope.

Twelve years ago my husband Markku and I helped launch the work of A Rocha (arocha.ca) in Canada. Together we founded the country’s first Christian environmental center, which has welcomed thousands of visitors and hundreds of interns.  Those who have come have restored salmon streams, grown organic veggies and opened the wonder of creation to children (among a myriad of other things!).

I wrote Planted: a Story of Creation, Calling and Community because I wanted to invite others on this remarkable journey of earthkeeping and joyful living.
