LETS – supporting local communities, empowering people

An eminently Permaculturalist idea, LETS is an alternative trading network made up of individuals who trade goods and services using a community currency called 'operas' instead of the national currency. It's a bit like bartering, but better!

Barter is a simple one-to-one exchange – I cook for you, you help me in my garden. LETS is different – each trade is paid for in 'operas' and recorded in a central ‘bank’. It allows you to provide a service for someone who might not have something you want, but can help someone else in the community. I cook for John; John works in your garden; you give me a massage treatment.

This kind of trading system is great for building local communities, promotes self-sufficiency and supports sustainability.

Eamonn O'Flaherty is a community support worker to a gentleman with special needs, a dance teacher and community organiser. He works with LETS as a coordinator and Inner West Hub organiser. Due to his prior membership to PSN he was introduced to LETS, for which he is very grateful.:-)
