Our Lyttelton Harbour Timebank turned 10 in September 2015
Professor Edgar Cahn, the originator of Timebanking worldwide and an inspiring speaker and thinker, came to New Zealand to help mark the occasion.
Timebankers from around Canterbury met with Edgar to hear him speak and for an Open Space event facilitated by Margaret Jefferies. Notes from the sessions can be read here:
