What are Trade Shack NEWS stories?

As mentioned before, we are a non-political, non-religious and non-discriminative platform. We encourage freedom of speech, that is backed up by facts. Stories that have no factual basis most likely will get bad reviews from members or we just take them down. 

In the current commercial News Cycles, there are so many hyped-up stories that it is difficult to find the truth, let alone find what is important. We do not “fall” in that same category. 

Ideally, members will post their successes, and take other members on a journey to self-sufficiency. Post on what and what does not work for them. Advertise new exchanges, post new recipes, and share ideas on everything really.
