Swinging out of September

Another Thursday well spend in the company of Nathan from Cat’s Corner showing us some classic moves and grooves! It was also a great time to pick up a mug or two from Jeff May’s Smokin Pottery to keep your cocoa in for those chilly Fall days. And we hope you all got a chance to check out Timebank, a community time exchange service where you give your time to a neighbor and they ‘pay’ you back with theirs.

You can check out all that and more in our new Facebook Album:

Community Exchange Timebank

Posted on by Mission Community Market in Blog | Leave a comment

The Bay Area Community Exchange Timebank is like a barter system but better.  For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community, you earn one hour from someone else in return. For example, you could help someone garden for an hour in return for an hour of guitar lessons from someone else.The more you help, the more you earn.

Timebank is meeting up at this week’s MCM! Meet others in the Mission who want to exchange with their community. You don’t have to have professional skills, it can be simple stuff like dog-walking or cooking lessons. Make a free profile with Timebank or join them at MCM.

Today at 5:30PM - Meet at the Timebank booth at MCM!

Twin Girls also has rich and delicious pluots, Thompson grapes, and nuts! Arata is wrapping up their fig crop and will soon have persimmons!
