A Message from Margaret Jefferies, the introducer of Time Banking to New Zealand.
Welcome to the Time Bank Aotearoa New Zealand (TBANZ) Website, it's skeletal and in development as at June 2016. The TBANZ project has been 'in limbo' since 2012. However, I want to introduce you to Jules (Julie Lee) who was the magnificent Lyttelton Timebank co-ordinator at the time of the earthquakes. When she was in that role she was also deeply involved in helping set up a national body for Timebanking in New Zealand. However the earthquakes demanded a lot of Jules’ attention for the Lyttelton Timebank leaving the driving of the national role to others. Time has passed and Jules recognized that her passion for Timebanking is stronger than ever. Thank you Edgar Cahn for your inspiring visit to New Zealand to raise our excitement around the development of Timebanking in our country.
The Forum on this website is not currently active. However, all of the information contained within the forum is of relevance so we have chosen to leave this up whilst we develop a new website. This website is being developed by some of our Timebankers who have skills in this area. They will receive Timebank credits for their time spent on the project. They can then use their time credit to recieve something that they need assisstance with.
