Even with the Covid19 restrictions we regularly hold workshops on a variety of different topics, that encourage living sustainably, and the sharing and learning of new skills and knowledge. Current times have seen us branch out into virtual workshops and discussion groups in place of kanohi ki te kanohi/face to face.
Workshops can generally be paid for with timecredits to Timebank plus occasionally money to the tutor to cover resources used (the tutor gets paid their timecredits by Timebank!). If there's something that you're keen to learn let us know and we'll see what we can organise. If you see a workshop in a different area within TTT from where you live there is often the opportunity to carpool with other timebankers to attend, and sometimes we can organise the same workshops to be held in multiple locations if requested.
Working Bees are a way for us to get together and help other members with bigger tasks that they may have, and generally involve tidying up of gardens and properties. These are a great way to support others in our neighbourhood, work with other like-minded people and earn timecredits. Obviously these aren't happening at the moment, but we are anticipating a greater than usual need for them once the rāhui/lockdown lifts.
