Weaver is a no-cost new app (still in beta) that supports meetings, record keeping, & organizational design: (hidden) . Now that we are at 170+ members and also have not been able to do in-person meetings like potlucks in a long time due to covid, I feel we need a boost to help knit together like-minded members in a new way. I'd like to explore this solution (and others if members know of tools they'd like to try.) On a side note... If you are an app developer and have ideas for how to improve Weaver, I believe it is open source. Also, it was co-developed by my mentor John Buck from GovernanceAlive LLC. If you happen to be interested in becoming trained as a facilitator in sociocracy, I may be able to arrange a work-trade agreement for you (outside the timebank -- this would be between you and GovernanceAlive.) Message me if you have interest about either or both of these.

While I will always be a timebanker and value the purity of a currency that measures solely with time, we all have bills to pay where a more liquid type of currency is required. There are some opportunities for people to be paid in combinations of USD $ and SEEDS (blockchain token, deferred receipt) for some jobs that I imagine some of our members are well-qualified for and would allow working from home. The SEEDS ecosystem was initially a bit confusing for me to navigate, being completely new to blockchain, cryptocurrency...even apps (I'm not a bit phone/app user, if you can believe it.) However, what they are about resonates with me and I pushed through my own learning blocks to figure it out and see some real value to creating a local bioregion there. Just like timebanking, unless you have members you know, like and trust and who agree to use the currency, its value will remain limited. Since we already have the start of that trust foundation, I figure the ramp-up time should be easier for us. The beauty of this as a supplement (not a replacement for timebanking) is that it can potentially create a bridge between a pure time currency and the US $. The benefits from this system come when you move from Visitor to Resident (relatively easy to do in 24 hours or so) and then from Resident to Citizen (takes about 59 days, or 2 lunar cycles). When you are a Citizen you can create and vote on proposals that reward the people who propose them with a combination of seed tokens and fiat currency. Most of the proposals put forth currently have to do with either technology and/or sales/marketing services that improve the ecosystem itself or regenerative agriculture projects that improve participating bioregions. I can see value for all sorts of proposals we could work on individually or as a group. To get you started I will give you a nominal amount of free seeds and the support to help you move from Visitor to Resident. You can pay me in time credit, no $ required. You will need a smart phone, the ability to safely store a 12-word password you will need to retrieve to access the digital wallet you'll need to create to store your tokens, the curiosity and the patience to learn a new system if blockchain is completely new to you (as it was for me) and the willingness to let the token value grow over time (not a get rich quick scheme.) If you are on Discord or willing to use it, that channel is where most members communicate -- your experience of SEEDS will be greatly enhanced by participating there. Once we have(hidden)members of the timebank onboarded to the level of citizen, I'd love to form a group where we can meet via Zoom somewhat regularly to look at creating proposals together.
Since July I have been working with an organization based in Washington DC called GovernanceAlive LL … Since July I have been working with an organization based in Washington DC called GovernanceAlive LLC . They started out as a marketing client for me but since that time they have morphed into friends, co-creators and mentors. They teach a decentralized form of decision making called Sociocracy. My mentor John Buck is responsible for bringing sociocracy to the English-speaking world -- he learned Dutch in order to translate the materials to help the movement take root around the world. He has written several books on the subject and has done a TEDx talk too. I recently took Module 1 (of 2) required for me to become a Certified Sociocracy Facilitator. The other requirement is that I need to conduct 10 practice sessions for "clients". Since I am still learning this skill, timebanking feels like a good medium to "charge" my clients, at least for now. As a side note: I intend to take all 7 modules of training by March 2022 to eventually become a Certified Sociocracy Consultant, which would allow me to train other facilitators. If you have an organization that meets via Zoom (the only way I'm offering this until further notice) let me know if you would like to try running a facilitated meeting to guide you through a decision making process. Sociocracy is a wonderfully inclusive method that allows every voice to be heard and helps group members make decisions via "consent" rather than "majority rule" or "consensus".

I have been practicing various aspects of permaculture for nearly my entire life. In 2016, I completed my Permaculture Design Course in Chicago, and in 2017 completed my Advanced Permaculture Teacher Training in Ann Arbor. I am certified to teach permaculture to all ages, and especially love working with teens. I would love to discuss and teach permaculture as a positive and action-oriented way of thinking and living in tune with nature through politics, economics, education, culture, land stewardship, organic gardening, and home care.

I have been culling for about a decade and have culled my own flock, as well as helped several friends with theirs. To me, it is a respectful process done in a spirit of gratitude and humbleness. If you are putting down a dear, feathered friend, we can hold a ceremony. If you are providing food for your family, we can prepare the carcass in various ways (whole, sections, parts, etc) and get it ready for oven or freezer. lf you are interested in teaching the process to your family and children, we can look at the anatomical and physiological features. Regardless of your intention, we will be considerate and thoughtful of the life that is ending.
