Change is a comin’…

And we’re excited! The Staunton/Harrisonburg hOUR Economy is almost ready to announce our Great Software Migration– in a few weeks, we will be shiftingto CW3, the latest version of timebank software. We expect it will be much easier for members to navigate, and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you!

In addition, our team is working to include exchange categories relevant to our unique community!  (We have a Valley full of gardeners, artists, and writers, for example.)  If there is a skill or talent you want to make sure is highlighted in the new skill share directory, let us know.

Stay tuned for more!  We expect to announce the new software by the end of August.

Parting Shot!

hOUR Economy members have been swapping gardening skills all summer. You can see more photos of hOUR economy gardening projects from around the Valley here, or let us know if you have a summer exchange to share. We’ll post member photos in upcoming newsletters.
