Timebank Knowledge Commons

Timebank Knowledge Commons

At long last, and after much time and effort, there is now have an infrastructure for a Knowledge Commons!


The Knowledge Commons is a new and growing resource. It's a Commons, a collection of materials generated by timebankers over generations, and that means everyone's active participation is needed to fill it in and keep it current. 

All timebankers are invited to contribute documents and links to the KC as well as write about your experience with all aspects of time banking. This means you! :)

Throughout the KC there are notes of where more documents and expertise are needed.
