Skillshare: Time Banking in the Time Trade Circle – Monday, June 6 – 6-8:30PM
The NonProfit Center by South Station
Looking for an alternative economy? Need a ride to the airport, help with your garden or a massage? This workshop will talk about time banking – exchanging services based on time – and tell you all about the Time Trade Circle (TTC), a local time bank with 800 members all over the greater metro-Boston and Eastern-Mass area. The workshop will explain how to join if you are interested, and forms will be available. I”ll explain how time banking is different from bartering, how our local Time Trade Circle time bank works, what kinds of services people trade, and how members participate through their online account. www.TimeTradeCircle.org

Recess for Justice – Saturday, June 25 – 11am-1pm
Southwest Corridor across from Stony Brook T station in JP
Bring your favorite outdoor game or check out the assortment of fun we”ll have on hand: Frisbees, kickball & chalk (for 4-square!), jump rope, basketball, softball (bring a glove) and whatever other randomness we can think of. If it”s hot we can run through the fountain sprinkler to cool off. Around 1pm, we”ll likely get out of the heat by going to Ula Cafe for lunch. So look no further if you want to cross-promote your events and campaigns while perfecting your Frisbee forehand, you”re seeking like-minded progressives to hang out with in Boston, or are new to the area and looking for groups to get involved in.
