OUT OF THE BOX #21: Eco-Village & Global Community Living News

in #ecotrainlast month


Changing the world starts with changing ourselves and the way we live, love, work and create together - as families, communities, tribes... Out of the Box is about new paradigms, fewer constraints, opened cage doors and treading more lightly - collectively - on Mother Earth.

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.

If you're able to delegate, or increase your delegation, to @ecotrain, it's a simple and practical way you can help to engage with, and fund, steem eco-villages around the world.

Most importantly, consider writing under the #ecotrain tag this coming week - we love all posts eco-green, earth building, spiritual and natural, but mostly as those things relate to the building and evolution of eco-community.


Appreciating so much the people who are OUT THERE, with dirt under their nails, experimenting, building, loving, laughing and sharing as they find new and more sustainable ways to cohabit and cocreate on this planet.
