What is Timebanking?

A timebank is an organized exchange system through which members can earn hours in the timebank from helping other members and can use those hours to have another member help them. Everyone’s time and service is valued equally. An hour of computer skills equals an hour of cooking or of transportation. It is based on time spent, not the value put on the service in the marketplace. We all have skills and talents that we can share with others.

Spread The Word!

We invite you to spread the word… who would YOU like to time trade with? Who do you know who has talents they’ve been wanting to share with others?
