Placemaker: Cultivating Places of Comfort, Beauty, and Peace

by Christie Purifoy 

(recommended by Dorothy Greco)

Christie Purifoy invites us to notice our soul's desire for beauty, our need to create and to be created again and again. Weaving together her family's journey with stories of botanical marvels and the histories of the flawed yet inspiring placemakers who shaped the land generations ago, Christie calls us to cultivate orchards and communities. Placemaker is a timely yet timeless reminder that the cultivation of good and beautiful places is not a retreat from the real world but a holy pursuit of a world that is more real than we know. A call to tend the soul, the land, and the places we share with one another. A reminder that we are always headed home.
