MEANINGFUL PLACES aims to “teach a person

beauty in the human environment. Environmental beauty is not merely

restorative work: producing something good, not just staving off
MEANINGFUL PLACES knows that
sustainable work requires joy, adventure, growth, and compassion.
PLACES work grows out of past
efforts & is a seedbed for future
