Timebank Knowledge Commons - Timebank Toolkit (tb-kc)
About the Timebank Knowledge Commons project (tb-kc)
is a free library of practical advice and materials for Timebanking, a continually growing collection of how-to guides, articles, videos, funding & project proposals, research papers, etc that can help people find existing timebanks, start and run timebanks, use timebanking to address specific social issues, and take their timebank or other community initiatives to new levels.
The Timebank Knowledge Commons project has developed over several years of work through Knit-a-Network (tb-kc)
, a loose affiliation of timebankers founded by Stephanie Rearick, Director of Dane County Timebank (tb-kc)
. Most of the participants are mainly in the US, but also in Canada, UK and Europe. We have benefited from the experience of others and wish to share those benefits more widely.
For work on the TB-KC so far, thanks especially to Stephanie Rearick, Greg Bloom, Cindy Jayne, Stacey Jacobsohn, Kathy Perlow, Beth Thorpe, Chris Vansprouts, Bob Hamber, Tim Dalton, Tony Budak, Eric Bachman, Edgar Cahn, Chris Gray, Martin Simon, Becky Booth, Chris Petit, Max Balakoff... (if we’ve mispelled or missed you in this list, please contact us!)

to Contact us or Upload documents, links & info.
When submitting documents and links for the TB-KC Library, please give as much information as you know... whatever you're not sure of can be filled in later, but the more complete your info, the sooner we can make the document or resource available in the TB-KC Library. Thank you!
This website is a "co-mirror" for the Timebank Knowledge Commons. The shared TB-KC database + technical assistance are available for TB-KC working-group members who wish to host alternative or mirror copies of the Timebank Knowledge Commons (join the TB-KC working-group here).
Here are some TB-KC co-mirror sites
... we're all in-progress, and not necessarily in-sync!
Update 2019 Sep 15 by chris vansprouts - the original TB-KC Timebank Toolkit pages are now available here at metasofa.org (after community-currency.info quietly vanished in June 2019)... still checking and cleaning up the articles, links & database, please contact us if there's something you can't find!
