The ABCs of Time Banking: An Alternative Economics Practice
A time bank is a web-based social networking skill pool where the currency is time and everybody’s time is equal. There are 276 time banks active in the US, with members building resilient community through creative exchange of services in such fields as health care, home maintenance, food production and the arts.

This workshop will present the relationship between natural economies of abundance (mycelial networks, mother trees) and human sharing economies. We’ll share exercises to identify our gifts and needs and offer ways to connect to the mycelial network a.k.a. the Chicago Time Exchange right now!
