Homesteaders - Living Naturally, Newsletter. 16th October 2019
It's been another week of wonderful content from the alternative lifestyle community and I really feel like this kind of content and the communities themselves are growing so much on Steem. There was a time when we had few viewers for it here, but now I hope the support for it will continue to encourage the growth of this genre of users. I hope you all enjoy what we have for you this week.

**Over at @ecotrain, @eco-alex isn't pulling any punches and we have another [challenging, maybe even controversial,  question for the question of the week.](https://steemit.com/ecotrain/@ecotrain/ecotrain-qotw-oct-14-20-what-is-the-root-of-conflict-between-mankind-what-needs-are-not-being-met)**

**The latest contest from @naturalmedicine is a makers challenge. They're looking to hear all about [making your own version of a store bought product.](https://steemit.com/naturalmedicine/@naturalmedicine/lotus-challenge-win-40-steem-plus-tokens-and-a-burning-and-more) See the post for more details on this.**
