Nubeans is a member driven trade network that grows community abundance, resilience and connections across the Tasman Peninsula
Hi I am Cate Foley Burke and I am a CENTS member. I have been in LETS, a similar system in South Australia. I used to enjoy the markets and events and often busked at them earning the equivilant of CENTs. Wow, I had my first trade within a couple of weeks of joining. I saw a listing on the CENTs Facebook Page for Enjo products being offered by a trader in Victoria. We were both new members and it was an easy process for a us both! Last week I did my first massage session paid for in CENTs. I am offering massage and natural health modality called the Seven Fields of Health and Healing. This my Koonya well-being space where I work.

I have been a Nubeans member for several years now. I have had the pleasure to trade for services and goods on occasion. What I love about local community exchange is to have little extras that are really luxuries when you are on a limited fixed income, such as the option to go out and have a main meal from Kelp & Co and pay for my meal in CENTs. I can see an unlimited potential when a community gets involved and brings a variety of goods and services to trade.

Nubeans Markets are opportunities to trade: to sell and buy and to meet and socialise with other local community exchange members. Unlike traditional markets, the emphasis is not only on selling one's wares but also buying. Here is a sample of how trading can work: at the last market, I hosted a small stall offering photo & ceramic brooches and moss pots. I purchased a t-shirt for C15, a crocheted neckwarmer for C20 and a pure linen bath towel for half cents and half federal dollars. I also bought x 3 succulents for C10. I sold a moss pot for C5, a ceramic brooch for C10 and two dining chairs for C15 each. I had a great morning socialising and came home with beautiful gifts for friends, plus plants for the garden. Later that week my account as debited C46 and credited C45. Check 'Events' for the next Nubeans Market.
