Volunteers are what makes Compost for Brooklyn work–and we have a great time while we’re at it! Come help us plan block parties, translate, weed, plant, turn and sift the compost, and host open hours.

What is a TimeBank?

TimeBanking is a reciprocal service exchange network in which people provide help, support and services to one another by using time instead of money as the currency. All TimeBank programs value one hour of service given to another as one time credit. The objective for each member is to earn time credits by dedicating time to others, and to use time credits by receiving assistance for themselves.
