Sommerville Lecture is a free public lecture.
Join Leah Kostamo as she speaks on the role of hope as a way to live well on a suffering planet.

 

Leah Kostamo is the author of Planted: a Story of Creation, Calling and Community. She is Co-founder of A Rocha Canada, a Christian conservation organization that shows God’s love for all creation. Together with her husband she started the first Christian environmental centre in Canada, which over the past 15 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 her A Rocha colleagues, “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.
