By the year 2030, when my two grandsons will be 19 and 22 years old, to create a world or place where most people can sit around the kitchen table with loved ones eating locally grown, wholesome food. And a place where there are no garbage trucks because people have become masters of unwaste.
In building this site, I have morphed from someone who has been grieving for the demise of our culture to who I now am. A man building a tool where people can help one another find a way out of the morass of so many of our institutions and systems (political, judicial, health, education) not working as effectively as they once did.
We’re building Time Exchange Coalitions in the Chicago Westside and Oak Park areas. Their purpose is to use TIME as money. We meet in a circle on 3rd Fridays from 10am to noon (in-person or virtually), and go through an agenda. We look for ways that we can help one another. We have just started recording the exchanges of time on our devices.
Interested? Contact me about you or your organization joining us. Cell 708-655-8833 or [email protected]
Skills I’m offering: tennis instruction, computer help, organizing, marketing, grant writing, urban planning, architecture, academic stuff like writing, math, and problem solving, clean living like simple healthy cooking & men’s circles, fixing stuff and creating quirky devices that you need.
Needs I have: 1 hour of your time in which you inspire people with whom you're connected to record as time transactions the help they give to another. Or connect them to me or another member of the Time Exchange Coalitions.

Hi, my name is Natasha, I am proud to become a new member of this village. Today I met Barry, and it was like a dream come true. Years ago I had a vision of bringing the barter system to pass. I truly believe in this concept. I would one day like to see a more unified society that is not all about money but more so about productivity. I look forward to collaboratig with other parties, sharing my talent's and being blessed by others. Thanks Mr. Barry this is an awesome idea. I hope it achieves much success.By :Natasha Maxon on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 - 2:25am
This website helps people focus on what they have in common, rather than how they're different. And this website is pleasing to the eye and easy to navigate.By :GailGalivan on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 1:00am
