Welcome!   berns (1)best

Our Mission is to promote the exchange of skills and talents, using time instead of money, to increase the sustainability and well-being of communities.

ORE’s Vision is a world of empowered, interdependent and resilient communities where everyone is valued equally, and has access to the services they need to enhance their well-being.

The Onion River Exchange (ORE) Timebank is a place for members to exchange skills, talents, and services using time instead of money.  ORE does not provide services, but it is a network of individuals, businesses, and organizations that share services with each other. Members of the ORE Timebank:

  • Give and receive services to/from each other
  • Save money
  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Feel connected and Involved in the community
  • Increase community health and well-being as well as support sustainability
  • Further develop a complimentary currency, time credits

Members post offers and requests and log time earned or spent exchanging services with each other on our online timebanking system. The time “banked” can be used for future exchanges with any member. Central to timebanking is the agreement that one hour of your time is equal to one hour of my time.  The ORE timebank is based upon the five core values of timebanking.
