Building a Just and Sustainable Economy for Santa Cruz County

Imagine using your skills, products or the unused capacity of your business to directly purchase what you need without the need for cash!

We are a not-for profit, cooperatively run organization, made up of local business owners, individuals and organizations who are concerned about providing the opportunity for Santa Cruz County residents to participate in a stable and just economy. We help local businesses to expand their purchasing power and increase cash flow and profits, while providing their customers with greater access to their goods and services, and helping the environment at the same time! While this might sound like a fantasy to some, it is a very common result of implementing a local trade exchange!
