Time trading is a system through which you can earn credits for the time you spend helping others in our community. An hour of everyone’s time is equal. As a member of Tompkins Time Traders you will be rewarded for doing what you love. By helping a neighbor you receive a time credit (TC) for each hour of your service or skill. In exchange, you can use the TCs you’ve accrued in the time bank for services offered by other members.
