Worcester: Time Trade Orientation at Stone Soup in Worcester

March 15, 2014

Worcester – Saturday, March 15, at 4 p.m., a Time Trade Orientation will be held at Stone Soup in Worcester, 4 King St. The Time Trade Circle, Massachusetts” Time Bank, will be holding the orientation, which is open to the general public, to learn more about time banking and register for the Time Trade Circle.

The Time Trade Circle is a local bank – but keeps track of time instead of money. The idea is simple: I earn a time credit by doing something for you. It doesn's matter what that “something” is. You turnaround and earn a time credit doing something for someone else. For example, an hour of gardening equals an hour of childcare equals an hour of dentistry equals an hour of home repair equals an hour of teaching someone to play chess. All people's time is valued equally, regardless of color, gender, level of education, or geographic location.

Anyone can become a member of the Time Trade Circle. Individuals, groups, organizations, government agencies, churches, businesses: they all can become members, and contribute time, energies,

Skills, and resources. To join, one must attend an orientation meeting and create an account on the Time Trade Circle website.

See more about the Time Trade Circle and “time banking,” in general, at http://timetradecircle.org/ and www.facebook.com/timetradecircle. Stone Soup, www.stonesoupworcester.org/, the host of the orientation, is a volunteer-run organization that brings together various Worcester leadership development and organizing groups doing social, environmental and economic justice work in the city of Worcester.
