Consolidating our energy towards a global network of steem-based eco-communities is a clear priority for @ecotrain. We deliberately and consciously curate those posts which speak to the issues, challenges and needs of the emerging steem eco-communities around the world.

Land zoning, building permits and fire risk are issues confronting the
fledgling Eco-Village project in Portugal. @orlev gives us the detail
in the spirit of transparency for collective learning that the project
is committed to.
The Odessa community in Bandung, Indonesia, is reverting to old,
traditional crops to address sustainable food source and spiraling cost
of living. Great to see how different cultures and communities around
the world are coming together aorund the themes of eco-living,
sustainability and community.
Practical how-to is a MUST-HAVE in any Eco-Village. @zumed shows us how
to make a simple home inverter, for moderating electrical current. His
NEXT project is a solar inverter - we're sure hoping he uses the
@ecotrain tag and shares that knowledge with us too! If you're not
already following @build-it, please do - so many great tips, projects
and how-to ideas.
The remote, indigenous, displaced Karen community on the Thai Burmese
border is continuing its Organic Frontiers project and preparing to
harvest its first herbal crop. Eco-Village and Eco-Community is a "have
to" survival strategy in this part of the world. @artemislives traveled
across Northern Thailand to see exactly how the crop has grown and to
make a harvest-action-plan with the local Karen community.
Growing out of the first communication challenges with the eco-village
project in Portugal, @eco-alex has generously offered a 4 week FREE Non
Violent Communication workshop. So much incredible learning and growing
to be had... please join in!

Yes, we're getting serious about getting steem out there in the twittersphere. A little birdie whispered there might be some juicy upvotes encouragement worms out there, and it's an important onboarding tool.
