Redefining wealth in the East Bay
Inside Cowrie Village age old tools for economic sovereignty are being reactived. Putting these tools to work is what Cowrie Village is about.
saltmne is a web based mobile app that facilitates peer to peer barter exchanges and offer a means of commerce using time as the currency. It’s a referral tool for folks ready to do business with barter.
To encourage community to flex our barter skills,Cowrie Village host Barter to The People, cash free barter events where we flip the script and set prices in trade and totally skp cash.
Rootical Gathering is a modern day sou sou. What’s a sou sou? It a corner stone system our grandmothers mother’s used (and most likely her grandmother, too!) to grow finances. build sisterhood and meet community needs. And that’s exactly what we do…we save in a circle and give as we go.
It’s less about replacing cash than rethinking our dependence on it. It’s more about deprogramming that reflex that has us seeing money as the preferred or only way to get things done. We believe it’s our imperative now to take a look back for true answers and move forward building truer options.. Our history and our ancestors show us that cash dependence is the opposite of true wealth. That type of abundance quite naturally starts from within. Help us build bridges to get there.
