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?
My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
