Christopher 'Birdz' Van Putten
My main focus is soil stewardship. I've grown a passion for encouraging quality organic food, personally thriving from mostly whole raw nuts, veggies, and fruit since 2014. I sometimes cook now. I freelance mentor and workshop. I sing with friends, volunteer, and donate 2/3 of my annual profits.
I'm on a mission to help catalyze the emergence of more eco-villages, naturopathic medicine, and music.
I enjoy empowering people, sharing information, and guiding inspiration into action.
We need a culture that's not only sustainable, but regenerative!

"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 considering what it means to be alive and human." -anonymous
