is a growing network of people who help and support each other by sharing services, skills, talents and knowledge. By both giving and receiving time ( exchanging) we experience reciprocity.
Instead of defining our community into those who need and those who give we recognize we all have needs as well as gifts.
We recognize that each person has talents to share, and that the overall community is strengthened when people help one another. For every hour that you help meet the needs of another member, you earn a time credit for the exchange. This time credit can then be redeemed for services from others, and the never-ending cycle of sharing continues.

May 2017 we have launched this initiative to the region and are journeying together to build a strong and resilient community.
