Time Banking is a way to trade knowledge, skills and services within a community, without exchanging money. For every hour you spend doing something for someone else, instead of dollars, you earn time credits. You can then use these credits 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 equals one time credit. Every person is valued equally.
Our mission is to enable a means of exchange that values sharing the gifts we have we others, strengthening a sense of community and inspiring respect for each other and our environment.
We're in the process of joining up with Far North Timebank to create Tai Tokerau Timebank which will cover the whole rohe from the Cape to Whāngārei, so you'll start to see some changes over the coming months. If you're within the wider region please sign up here now even though it still says Kaitāia, we'll be renaming the site when a few other practicalities have been ironed out.
