What is the (h)OUR Economy?
hOUR Economy is a local economy of friends — those we’ve met and those we haven’t yet. Instead of money, we exchange time.
Our online timebank allows members to share their talents with others in the community, and thereby earn “hOURs” that are recorded in the online timebank. In exchange, they can use their hOURs to purchase gardening assistance, cooking classes, business services, wellness and medical care, pet sitting, bicycle repair, and many other local services.
In hOUR Economy, everyone’s hOURs are treated equally, and everyone’s contribution is valued. Learn more about the timebank by reading our Frequently Asked Questions. Or, you can check out our online tutorial below.
See more of our video tutorial by subject on our Tutorials page.
