These are potlucks!
That means bring a dish to share
(and earn an hour)

AND bring your own plate(s) and silverware, etc.
Bring yourself, your family, and friends
especially if they are interested in joining

Meetings are open to all members, guests, and future members.


Central Coast Hour Exchange is a member-led organization started in 2012 with three main goals:

  • Strengthen the fabric of our community.
  • Serve people and give them a means to serve.
  • Establish new relationships and meet real needs of our community members.

The Mission of the Central Coast Hour Exchange is to encourage people to connect with others in the community to build networks of mutual assistance and create a more resilient and sustainable local community.

We recognize that each person has talents to share, and that the overall community is strengthened when neighbors help one another. For every hour that you help meet the needs of another member, you earn a time credit through the exchange. This time credit can then be redeemed for services from others, and the cycle of helping grows and strengthens.

√ Imagine getting hour credits for providing services and using skills that you enjoy. 

√ Imagine using those hour credits for the things you least enjoy or can’t do for yourself!

hOurworld Mobile Time Banking We believe in Open Innovation! We implement the best ideas of our members and coordinators. This broad based co-production model of networking and development affords us all the best tools for sustaining our local communities!

We believe in removing ALL the barriers to time banking that we can. Access to the hOurworld platform is FREE. It is easy for new members to join and learn, and easy for coordinators to manage and report on their members and activity.

We believe in supporting local diversity while maintaining a central cooperative organization to provide accessible support, training, and communications. We are documenting and teaching these models.

We believe that every member have control over their own privacy and content. We operate on private secure servers and HIPAA compliant data centers where all information is encrypted before going out on the internet.

We believe that time banking is one spoke in a wheel of Movements Moving Together. We foster local community organizations drawing together to create powerful local economies as they integrate CSA, Food Co-op, Buy Local, Transition Town, BALLE, CAP and others. The opportunities are endless!

All the Best from hOurworld
