Our TIme Bank, October 14

Our Time Bank

Our Time Bank (OTB) is a community of people living in the Culver City, Palms and Mar Vista area who support each other.  For every hour you help another member, you earn a TimeBank Hour. Then you can use that TimeBank Hour to have a neighbor help you. There's no minimum or maximum time commitment. It's like bartering time, but you don't have to trade directly with the person who helps you. Members use a simple internet-based system to list the services they want to give and receive and to keep track of hours exchanged.

Our Time Bank coordinator Melissa Minkin started the group in 2009 with many hours of support from other founding Time Bank members. OTB is open to all people who live and work in Culver City, Palms, Mar Vista. Membership has grown fast but it still small and working on building community. 

Come by the Green Tent to learn more about Our Time Bank from several OTB members.  See how you can become part of this growing community.
