Lyttelton Time Bank Workshop
The Lyttelton Time Bank was the first Time Bank in New Zealand. It is run as a project within Project Lyttelton - a grass roots community group www.lyttelton.net.nz Time Banks started in the United States and have now spread worldwide. There is much interest nationally in Time Banking.
