ALT.Life - A Directory of Alternative Lifestyle Communities on Steem @ 19 March 2019

in #altlife3 years ago

Steem has some really good 'alternative lifestyle' related communities.

These include Homesteaders Co-op, Natural Medicine, Vegans of Steemit, EcoTrain, TribeSteemUp, Canna-Curate and Truth Decentralized.

There may well be others I haven't come across yet.

As part of my plan to promote alternative lifestyle communities on Steem to attract new 'ALT.lifers' onto the platform I have started compiling a directory of the communities.

The Directory of Alternative Lifestyle Communities on Steem @ 19 March 2019

Thank you everyone for the feedback on the first draft of the directory.

I believe I have incorporated everyone's comments and feedback. My apologies if I missed anything - please do message me again.

Here is the updated and more complete directory.

If you know of any other communities on Steem that should be added please let me know. Likewise with any amendments to the information below.

I have also recently started drawing together a list of homeschoolers and unschoolers on Steem. It would be really great if we could get a Un/Homeschooling community active on the platform. Anyone interested do let me know.

Love it, @pennsif! A couple small updates for next time:

I believe HSCO just announced their website in the discord.

A couple of the features of NM are the curation team and our archives of natural medicine that are available to members who make a small delegation.

Would you mind updating our entry with a link to our new community profile on our website? This provides more info about our community.

Also, can you please change our description to read:

Our Homesteaders Co-op is a steem community run marketplace. We choose people over profit. Cooperation over corporation. And so we have more opportunity to choose how we operate – as a community.
