Do you know about Time Banks?

A good friend of mine just told me about time banks. As someone who started both a babysitting co-op and a food co-op back in the '70's at my (now ex) husband's grad school...I love this idea.

Have you had any experience with them?

Here's how they are described at

Time Banks Weave Community One Hour at a Time

For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community, you earn one Time Dollar. Then you have a Time Dollar to spend on having someone do something for you. It's that simple. Yet it also has profound effects. Time Banks change neighborhoods and whole communities. Time Banking is a social change movement in 22 countries and six continents.
