Lockyer Valley TimeBank
WHat is Timebanking?
Timebanking is a community network that allows the voluntary exchange of services between members.
You spend an hour helping someone - that earns you a one hour Time Credit - you can spend that credit by having another member provide a service to you, such as ironing, gardening, have a massage, learn quitar, painting, computer assistance etc
Everyone's time is worth the same - ie one hour of gardening is the same as one hour teaching computer skills.
See the first minute of this short video to see how it works. . .

Get to know people who live around us
Have fun, build connections
Support and care for one another

No skill is too
simple or too small.
