As the Director of Operational Development for the Common Wealth Time Bank, it has been a bit of a challenge to direct the operations while living the life of a nomad. Fortunately, the time bank is still growing thanks to the members who continue to envision a way of operating beyond the limitations of the current financial paradigm. Even more fortunate, now that I have found a place to hang my hat, the Common Wealth Time Bank will soon have an actual building through which it can operate more functionally.

Currently, we are in the process of cleaning up and redesigning the warehouse that has affectionately become known as The Flow Factory. Complete with rooftop gardens, a tool share program, workshop, fused glass kilns, and community meeting space, the Flow Factory will enable members of the time bank to meet more regularly and develop the connections necessary in order to truly allow for our abundance to flow.

Building upon the premise that a truly free market economic system should allow for more than one currency, the Flow Factory will still accept Federal Reserve Notes (after all, we do still have to keep the lights on), but will also accept Time Dollars, barter arrangements, and Growbucks, yet another alternative currency recently developed in Manatee county.

If you would like to get involved in the Flow Factory from the get go, please email me at steve@commonwealthtimebank.com to schedule a time to come find your flow.
