What we'll discuss: 
Our Time Bank is a community of people living in the West Los Angeles area who support each other. They started in Culver City, Palms and Mar Vista and are expanding into nearby neighborhoods. Timebanking is an alternative currency, exchanging services within the community. Instead of dollars, you use Time Credits. For every hour you help another member, you earn a Time Credit. Then you can use that Time Credit to have a neighbor help you. There’s no minimum or maximum time commitment.
 
Unlike bartering, which places a cash value on goods and services (and is taxable), TimeBank services are traded for Time Credits (not taxable) and 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 would like to offer or want and to keep track of Time Credits exchanged. Members range in age, skill sets and involvement.
