I really like healing (and being healed by) soil, directly, through removing invasive plants / stewarding habitats.

“Thank you. Your efforts to eradicate invasive English Ivy are commendable and I appreciate your willingness to engage in sustainability issues both as an entrepreneur and advocate. The spirit of your work reflects the innovative solutions we need to take under consideration when addressing our environmental legacy.” -Jennifer Williamson, OR Rep. 36th District (Feb. ’14)
“My buddy Christopher is a successful entrepreneur. He prefers to live without many of the things the rest of us require. After staying in the woods for a while, his eyes are wild with the intensity of someone living their principled passions at the cost of much discomfort, and that discomfort is experienced to him as joy. He is fricking nuts and he is the kind of crazy that is much needed in our safe and comfortable lives. Conversations with Christopher are intense and sound like chapters of Walden. He has the calm of [a] person who has been spending so many hours alone in a tent considering what it means to be alive and human.” -S.L. (Vashon, WA; ‘14)
“It is very important to have people such as yourself make an honest integral change for the environment; we need more people like you to help nature maintain itself. Like an immune system, it can only be brought up and built up, by feeding it the right things.” -Eric P. (Dec. ‘17)
