Building Permanent Culture in Knoxville
We are a collective of people in and around the Tennessee Valley who exchange time, skills, and ideas to build strong communities. Our members are artists, writers, farmers, business people, skilled workers, poets, teachers, and activists who share the vision of a world in which all people have equal access to resources and where creativity and cooperation are core values.
A time bank allows people to exchanges talents and skills for other services that they need without paying cash. The time bank introduces members to each other and facilitates the exchange. For every hour of services given to another member, you earn one time dollar, which can be traded for services from any other member of the time bank--for example, getting a ride, learning to use a computer, or mowing a lawn. The time dollar system values everyone's contributions equally, so that no matter what service you give, one hour equals one time dollar.
