Within our communities and networks the economic, physical, social, emotional and spiritual well being of the environments we live and work in and people we live and work with are enriched when we consciously design and move from the question…. .who and how can I contribute to the well being of the whole and how does the whole contribute to my well being?

All participants are required to invest talent, time, skills to local food system development. This can be in many forms: volunteer time to operate Market Days, improve the operations, marketing and promotions of existing Market Day locations, back room/infrastructure work. This is mandatory as it will assist in the development of ecological practicum team and project development. Timebank hours will be recorded and will flow into a collectively designated vessel e.g. cooperative shares, trade barter value etc.
