Below is a video about time banks. In particular, it features the Onion River Exchange Time Bank in Vermont.
In a time bank, no money is exchanged. Members of a community support each other with the exchange of favors and services. but it’s not quite barter. It provides a way to keep goods and services flowing while building relationships beyond the usual business transactions.
Watch the video to get a better understanding of how a time bank works.
