Update December 2018
It seems that the two lists of New Zealand timebanks described below, in 2012, are not currently available. For an alternative list, see comment below.
There are two authoritative and well-maintained lists of Timebanks around New Zealand:
1. Living Economies list of New Zealand Timebanks – arranged by geographical region.
2. TBANZ (TimeBank Aotearoa New Zealand) list of New Zealand Timebanks – arranged in alphabetical order by name.
When I began my research in March 2011, there were only seven or eight Timebanks that existed in New Zealand:
Hokonui Timebank (Gore); New Brighton (near Christchurch); Lyttelton; Roimata (which was not active at that time, also in Christchurch); Taita; Otaki; Eastbay TimeBank (Whakatane); and Kaitaia (also not active at that time).
Compare this list, of only six active Timebanks in March 2011, to the lists that you see on the Living Economies and TBANZ websites today. Only 15 months later we have emerging and established Timebanks in more than 20 locations around Aotearoa New Zealand. (This is not to suggest that my research has had something to do with this, although I can claim some responsibility with regard to the establishment of the Dunedin Timebank). I think it is important however to look back and see how far Time Banking has come in New Zealand in a short space of time, and to celebrate the national networking, collaboration, and support that is making this possible. If you would like to read a bit about the history of national collaboration between Timebanks in New Zealand, see this summary that I compiled for the TBANZ website.
