N4 blends important core values of time banking and the village concept in order to build social capital and increase community engagement.
A service exchange or time bank is a network of individual, organizational, and business 'members' that provide services, track and bank their hours and then spend those hours to get their own needs met. A service exchange is NOT a barter network, since nothing is 'exchanged'. One 'member' provides a friendly, neighborly favor to another and records the time they spent doing so.
Almost all of our events and workshops are FREE and open to the public!
