Trade School is a non-traditional learning community that runs on barter. We celebrate local wisdom, mutual respect, and the social nature of exchange. It works like this…
1) People offer to teach a class about something they know.
2) They decide on a list of barter items they’re interested in receiving. Barter items can be in the form of goods or services, both tangible and intangible. For example: jars, music tips, clothes, vegetables, or help with something like finding an apartment.
3) Students sign up for their class by agreeing to bring something from their list.
