THE MISSOULA TIME BANK IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS! We hope you will join us by becoming a member.

Affiliated with Transition Missoula and Jeannette Rankin Peace Center, the Missoula Time Bank (MTB) is a service exchange that uses time rather than money as the unit of currency. Members provide services for other members, bank time hours and spend them on services they need. Time bankers practice the principle of reciprocity – everyone gives and everyone receives. All skills are valued equally.

Go to our website at to find out more about time banking and to become a member. Be sure to watch the videos on time banking created by the Onion River Exchange in Vermont and Hour Exchange Portland in Maine. These established time banks have more than 700 members each, and their videos are inspiring!

To administer our time bank with a part-time paid coordinator, we ask that members pay an annual fee of $25. However, no one will be turned away.

We welcome your participation in the Missoula Time Bank. By joining, you will contribute to building community, abundance, and economic resilience in the Missoula area. You will have fun providing services you enjoy sharing, and you will have access to all the services other members offer.

LIKE US on Facebook and spread the word about Missoula Time Bank to your friends.

If you have questions, please email us at or call the Jeannette Rankin Peace Center (406-543-3955) and leave a message for MTB with your contact information.

I have four raised beds (plus two other ground-level beds at the front of the house) that I won't be gardening in this year and would love to have them used by someone who needs them. They are in the backyard of my home which is in the University district of Missoula. I will provide hoses and water (and watering time), you provide all else. If interested, please contact me at:

Can anyone point to a reputable source that indicates how long tannins remain in pine and fir after the tree has died? Trying to identity if/when this wood might be good for a hugelkultur bed.

AERO has an on-line directory of Montana-grown food and product: Abundant Montana

Seems a great way to source local foods. Curious if others know about this and have used it?

Missoula's Food Bank once again steps up to the plate this Thanksgiving, doing what it can to minimize the financial stress and uncertainty that so many Missoulians are feeling. According to a Missoulian article, the food bank was anticipating distributing approx. 1,500 turkeys, likely exceeding last year's number. Missoulian article Thank you Missoula Food Bank!
