This is what they say about it:

Please join the Timebank membership for its first POSSE Party in the SOMA and bring your favorite dish to share or instrument to play. If you are new to the Timebank, show up early to our orientation at 6pm. If you have skills like sewing, bike repair, massage, bread-making, Spanish lessons, or goods like homemade jam, produce, kombucha or textiles, you can earn hours at this event just for showing up and sharing! And do not forget to bring your dancing shoes and friends who might be interested in joining the Timebank! These POSSE Parties will be initiated by Timebank members in other neighborhoods on a regular basis. Contact timebankinfo (at) to host one in your neighborhood. It is your Timebank!

Also, if you want to volunteer, they need help, especially if you are a Ruby on Rails developer. They say:

The next Timebank meeting is on Mon. Jan. 10 at 8pm, Noisebridge 2169 Mission St. 3rd floor SF. For meeting announcements, check the calendar at the bottom of the Timebank home page (logged in view), join the volunteer listserv, or contact mira (at)

Come to a meeting to volunteer! We need your input in the design, outreach, and oversight of the Timebank. We are an unfunded, volunteer-based, community-run Timebank, which means we need YOU! We can definitely use help in doing outreach at events, meetings, and to organizations that serve the community. We also need small donations for making brochures and cards with info. about the Timebank.

The Timebank needs help with it's website development in Ruby on Rails. Please contact us if you have the skills and the time to participate.
