Community Anchor Organisations - Scottish Community Alliance
government report Firm Foundations, which was published by the Home Office in 2004 when David Blunkett was Home Secretary. This far-sighted document was the government's official framework for community capacity building and stated: "We are calling them `community anchor organisations` because of the solid foundation they give to a wide variety of self help and capacity building activities in local communities and because of their roots within their communities."

Anherchists - scioscribe - Community (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Instead of going to Greendale, Britta starts an anarchist collective farm. Everyone still winds up tangled in each other's lives, just with more baking, less makeup, and a fair amount of agriculture.

Precious Plastic
"Precious Plastic is a global community of hundreds of people working towards a solution to plastic pollution. Knowledge, tools and techniques are shared online, for free. So everyone can start (yes, you too!).

We are independent, poor but free :)
Hundreds of people all over the world contribute to the project with their skills & knowledge, single or monthly donations.

Precious Plastic was started in 2013 by Dave Hakkens and is now at its third iteration (version) counting on dozens of people working on the project, remotely or on site (somewhere below sea level in the Netherlands).

Join the fight against plastic pollution."
