Out of the Box #20: Eco-Village & Global Community Living News

in #ecotrain17 days ago (edited)

Consolidating our energy towards a global network of steem-based eco-communities remains a clear priority for @ecotrain. Out of the Box deliberately and consciously curates those posts, blogs & vlogs which speak to the issues, challenges and needs of community living and the emerging steem eco-communities around the world.

@ecotrain is a global steem community gathered around the concept of natural giving, living in harmony with other Earth and actively making our world a better place. We engage around sustainability, community, self-sufficiency, off-grid living, eco-green, permaculture, the glories of Mother Earth, inner transformation, alternative energy, earthships & earth building, recycling - in short, all the practical and conceptual underpinnings of paradigm shift.

Each week @eco-alex and @artemislives scour the steemit blockchain for people using the tag, and upvote-comment-curate in the best way they know how.


Upvote this eco-community curation and our featured posts if you can. Comment, resteem this curation and a few of the posts. Delegate only if you feel to.
Follow, engage and enjoy.
