Is the glass half empty or half full? Many people in the US operate on an economy of scarcity. The answer is: it doesn’t matter - there isn’t enough water! An economy of abundance builds on existing community resources to create a sustainable local economy. The answer becomes: it doesn’t matter - we have enough water! Join us for a discussion about the culture of abundant communities and their traits. We’ll then look at one approach that creates a parallel economy or alternative currency for neighborhoods in Indianapolis. TimeBank Indy is creating a time and service exchange network that fosters new ways of looking at time, wealth and community.

Bring one of the following:
a local or homemade good or food item
a poem
a story about a time when you experienced someone's kindness, generosity, trust, or forgiveness
an example of a neighbor, friend or family member showing hospitality to a stranger
something else you’d like to offer (email your teacher before class)
teach a class (email Trade School before class)
volunteer for this class as a facilitator (email Trade School before class)
