Selwyn Timebank Orientation
Lincoln Library
18th Jul 2014

This is a 1 hour friendly session to find out more about Timebanking, have a look at the website, and answer any questions that you may have. 


What is Timebanking?

Timebanking is a way of trading skills, knowledge and services within the community. Instead of dollars, time credits are used as payment.  You earn time credits for the work you do, and then use them to 'buy' another member's time to get the services you need. 

Everyone's time is equal no matter what type of work is done, one hour always equals one time credit. 1=1. Every person is equally valued.

Orientations run on the third Thursday of every month 6-7pm and the first Monday of every month 10-11am at the Lincoln Library.

For further information please contact Meredith on 03 325 7062, email us at or sign up via the website
