*Skillshare: Time Banking in the Time Trade Circle**** - Monday, June 6 -
6-8:30PM*
The NonProfit Center by South Station
Looking for an alternative economy? Need a ride to the airport, help with
your garden or a massage? This workshop will talk about time banking -
exchanging services based on time - and tell you all about the Time Trade
Circle (TTC), a local time bank with 800+ members all over the greater
metro-Boston and Eastern-Mass area. The workshop will explain how to join if
you are interested, and forms will be available. I'll explain how time
banking is different from bartering, how our local Time Trade Circle time
bank works, what kinds of services people trade, and how members participate
through their online account.

your own dinner)

*Recess for Justice - Saturday, June 25 - 11am-1pm*
Southwest Corridor across from Stony Brook T station in JP
Bring your favorite outdoor game or check out the assortment of fun we'll
have on hand: Frisbees, kickball & chalk (for 4-square!), jump rope,
basketball, softball (bring a glove) and whatever other randomness we can
think of. If it's hot we can run through the fountain sprinkler to cool
off.  Around 1pm, we'll likely get out of the heat by going to Ula Cafe for
lunch. So look no further if you want to cross-promote your events and
campaigns while perfecting your Frisbee forehand, you're seeking like-minded
progressives to hang out with in Boston, or are new to the area and looking
for groups to get involved in.
*RSVP:* http://www.sojust.org/events/17521346/ *Newcomers always welcomed!*

For Justice,
 Robbie
