Lyttelton, portal to Canterbury’s historic past, a vibrant sustainable community creating a living future

How did Time Banking start?

Edgar S Cahn developed the Time Banking concept in the USA. Since then, it has spread to many countries around the world. Time Banking acknowledges we all have something to contribute to our communities and that what we offer is valued. Project Lyttelton has set up New Zealand's first Time Bank and now advises other communities on developing their own Time Bank.
