Monthly Membership Gathering   

To learn more about Timebanking and how it all works, join us for the next Timebank gathering.

All are welcome, and we encourage current members, “not-yet” members and their families to attend. It’s a great opportunity to meet other members and learn more about the West Seattle Timebank. We may have an interesting speaker from the community or a shared activity! Most of our gatherings last approximately 2 hours; plan to come for all or part of the program.

While we have always gathered on the third Thursday of each month, we listened to the needs of our membership and are changing our meeting spaces, days, and times throughout 2017.

Watch for details on the front page of our website. You can also commonly find us on various calendars: West Seattle Blog, NextDoor, and City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

Another way to find out about our gatherings and events is to sign up for our mailing list. Anyone interested may sign up by sending an email to You will only receive 1-2 emails per month from us and your information is never shared.

Let’s spread the word about Timebanking!
