Fedi.Garden is a small human-curated list of nice, well run servers on Mastodon and the wider Fediverse. All of them have opted-in and promised to obey specific standards of reliability and responsible moderation.
Don’t worry if you can’t make up your mind! Whichever server you choose, you can follow people from other servers and they can follow you. Also, if you change your mind, you can always move to another server later ⧉ without losing your followers.
To get started, click on one of the options below. If you’re not sure where to start, just click “general” to see a list of general servers.
NOTE: I check each server’s rules and feed for red flags at the time of listing, and I ask the admins to confirm they obey the rules of the Covenant, but I don’t have the resources to do a formal audit. Please let me know if a listed server has done anything problematic.
