The Santa Fe Time Bank is an hour-exchange network where members match unmet needs with untapped resources using “time dollars” as currency. As the cash economy has become increasingly strained, this kind of complementary currency has become increasingly important for many people.


Each member’s time is valued equally with respect for each person’s offerings. Exchanges are “banked” and recorded in a software program. Offers and requests are displayed in each member’s profile in searchable listings.


The Santa Fe Time Bank holds a monthly introductory gathering at Natural Grocers, 3328 Cerrillos Road, where they give an overview of time banking nationally, an orientation to core values, and detail how it works. After an update on local news and developments, members hear newcomers’ introductions, offers and requests, and then match needs and resources as they get acquainted over a potluck supper. This event is held the third Monday of every month from 5:30-7:30 pm.
