Time banks

One of the many things that I learnt about at the Transition Highbury AGM was Time Banking. It encourages skills sharing and volunteering by providing a platform from which to give your time and receive time credits in return. So if you help someone to plant their potatoes for an hour, you can then have an hour’s help learning to paint for example- great for community spirit. Time banking is cool and has several famous patrons including Dame Anita Roddick and Jonathon Porritt.
