Hi TimeBank Member, 

There are some fun events going on soon, including 2 member created events-pumpkin carving this Sunday and a costume party in a few weeks!  We hope you can join in. Meeting other members and engaging in a project, an event or a social activity is a great way to be involved in this community. We have found in the TimeBank, that the more a member engages the community, meets more members, the more exchanges they do. 

So join in and have some fun! Looking forward to seeing you!

Membership Committee Meeting

Java Brewing Company
The TimeBank Membership committee is looking for more members! Are you interested in  member events, potlucks, helping the TimeBank find more members, working on the direction the membership programs head? Join in this meeting! If it is not a good time for you, feel free to contact Membership Committee Chair Stephanie Corbett to see how you can be involved! 


The Louisville TimeBank and its members are involved with several events at the Bluegrass Bioneers Conference October 25-27. Below are some of the events that the TimeBank will be involved in. 
Check out the conference and register(free)

Re-skilling fair:
Saturday October 26 1:30-3:30
This will be an opportunity to share and learn skills related to local resilience and sustainability.  We have some great demonstrations scheduled, including textile making, bee keeping, herbal medicine, rope making, seed sprouting, soap making, and more.  If you have a skill you can share, such as making kombucha, earth building, working on bikes, building a cold frame, sharpening blades, or something else that can help build a more resilient community, we welcome you to join us!  

Seed Swap and information exchange:
Saturday October 26 3:30-5:30
Do you have some seeds to share? Would you like to stock up for the next growing season?  Do you have some questions for a more experienced gardener?  Or are you a gardener who can impart some wisdom on those just getting started?  This will be a great time to exchange, and learn from each other. 

Contact Juliya Pogrebinsky for more information on the seed swap and re-skilling fair.
