Please join the newly established EFG/ Fairbanks Time BankTime banking is a reciprocity-based work trading system in which hours are the currency. It is a form of community currency, part of the 'sharing economy', which enables a person with one skill set to trade hours of work with someone with another skillset, without any money changing hands. New members receive 1 hour of time just for joining. 

Also, join us for a fun PotLuck at 6pm (new time) on Monday March 2, 2020 where we will continue the discussion about the emerging  EFG / Fairbanks Time Bank!!! Our potluck will include a main dish provided by your Community Council, so bring a side, salad, dessert, or drinks. Time bankers will earn 1 hour of time just for attending the pot luck. 


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.
