New to hOUR Economy?

hOUR Economy is a timebank, where members exchange time rather than money for a fairer, more participatory, more joyful local economy. We believe that everyone has needs, everyone has value, and access to friendly exchange should never be limited by ones bank account. All of our events welcome new members, so please feel free to come whether you’ve attended in the past or not!

New to Geezer Farm?

Then welcome! Norm Shafer, our potluck and farm tour host, is also the farmer behind Geezer Farm. He has put many hOUR Economy participants to work over the years, and is also a member of the Augusta Permaculture Guild. He’s a connector between alternative economies and local food economies, and he’s also a wealth of information about seed starting, greenhouses, gardening and more.
Thank you Norm!
