Welcome to Vine Communities

Building Communities of Resilience

Welcome to Our Platform

Join a learning community of like-minded people from around the world to discuss matters related to self-sufficiency and sustainable development. You will also be able to attend online courses and live events as well as keep up to date with our face-to-face course offerings and events.  

Vine Communities has both a physical location and an online platform. The online platform is reserved exclusively for our community members who joined our school and those around the world interested in gaining self-sufficiency skills.

Here are a few things that make our online community special:

  • We've got polls, prompts, posts, and questions that can bring more people into conversation in a space that's all our own.
  • We've got Topics to organize our activity, Search to find what we're looking for, and Save Post for you to come back to your favorites quickly. We encourage you to write your posts under the pre-selected topics, and we'll be happy to add more topics as the community grows. 
  • You can direct message, other community members. You can also post and have threaded conversations.
  • You can attend and or organize virtual sessions and events.
  • You can keep conversations and messaging going before, during, and after our events.
  • If and when we want them, we can also organize smaller groups depending on the need of our growing community.

In other words, we've chosen a spot designed to support the learning you take in our classes and help you grow with us over time.

Here are a few things to know as you get started:

Make Things Friendlier –– Add Your Photo

Add a profile photo of your beautiful face. When we can't be together in person, pictures make a huge difference. Also, add your mini-bio or, better yet, a quick introduction for new people.

You can do this by choosing Edit on your Profile.

Adjust Your Notifications

Adjust the notifications you receive over email or mobile at any time. To tweak them, click on your face in the upper right-hand corner, choose Your Settings, and click Notifications. Adjust accordingly. Same for sounds.

Add Posts, Articles, Polls, Photos, and Questions

The heart of our community is your content as you share your progress, ask questions and celebrate your achievements. 

When you click into the main box on the Home screen, you'll get different options from adding a post to uploading a photo, embedding a video via a link, sharing a link or a file, or creating a poll.

There are three different kinds of polls, all of which are fantastic––multiple-choice, hot/cold (great for how you and other members feel about something), and percentage of time or resources.

If you want to add a gif, do it by adding a photo. Vine Communities doesn't have a gif keyboard just quite yet.

Even Better Than Posting? Comment, Reply and Contribute to Other People's Posts and Questions

Nothing is lonelier than a post without comments or cheers or a poll that is flailing in the wind. The purpose of our community is to learn from one another and cheer each other as we celebrate our achievements. 

When you join, go ahead and share your answer, say hey, or click the cheer button if you're in a hurry.

Use Topics

You'll be prompted to add your posts to a Topic. Go for it. They are here to help us keep things a bit organized. If you have recommendations for other Topics for us to add, let us know, and we'll add them.

Get the App on your Phone

To get the iOS or Android app, go to Your Settings, and text yourself the app. Alternatively, download the Mighty Networks app from the Apple App or Google Play Stores, search for Vine Communities, and sign in again (it doesn't work for secret Mighty Networks, but give it a try).

Want to Teach? 

If you have experience in any of the topics discussed or have an idea for a class we can offer, please let us know. We'll give you Instructor privileges so that you can run both live and online courses, stream live videos from the platform and create monthly challenges for our community.

To gain those privileges, please fill in the form, and we will get back to you once we file your application.

Before You Go –– Help Us Keep This Place Special

We're creating something unique with Vine Communities. So please share generously, be quick to support other members, and resist the temptation to troll, self-promote, or judge. We're doing something different here.
