I am starting the Franklin County Time exchange here in suburban/rural missouri. I think there is a real need for services and connections and i think that alot of people are going without because there is not enough cash to go around.
I am so tired of monetizing everything. I've been growing veggies here for 3 years and hate that people can't afford to buy them. I have been trying to build a community here, and have had some success, but it has to go beyond people who share my politics (i'm in the minority 20%).
I'd love to add in tool sharing and maybe a trading post.
does anyone have any experience with a network like this? i know there are informal arrangements among people who know each other, but it's so hard to meet people these days... your thoughts?
 
That feels good. Thanks. Here's a tiny ad:
