A Local Currency for
Exchanging & Sharing Abundance

How the Community can Support You

April 9, 2020

I hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy and safe.

At the Hudson Valley Current, our Rapid Resilience initiative continues to ramp up. We’ve added a bunch more delicious prepared foods from Satisfy Hunger chef Christine Atkinson to our Tilda’s Kitchen & Market. You can order online, pay digitally with your Currents, and we’ll arrange a convenient time for delivery. Delivery days are Wednesday and Friday.

You can also use your Currents to purchase items from the Hawthorne Valley Farm Store, which carries bulk foods and garden supplies along with an extensive grocery selection, or a CSA share from them that will keep you eating well all season long.

Don’t forget, the Current flows both ways. If you’ve got more time on your hands than is usual, it’s a great chance to think about your entrepreneurial potential. The world is realigning. We’ll need all kinds of new ideas; why not yours?

Running a business is a lot of work. Running the right business for you is also enormously fun. For some great insight into what the world needs now, check out what your fellow Current members are up to at the Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship Network in Kingston.

Your membership in the Current gives you access to a 300 Current line of credit and the marketing and business expertise of fellow members. Currents can also be used to advertise in Livelihood and let your neighbors know what you can offer.

What we are trying to build here, using community currency as a tool, is a local economy that truly serves us as people and is independent of the ups and downs of the mainstream. With money made by local trade, we can meet each other’s needs.

Why not take a minute today and think of something you could barter on the Current marketplace and treat yourself to a gourmet meal from Satisfy Hunger? 
You’ll be taking great care of yourself and everyone else at the same time.

Thank you so much for joining me on this unfolding adventure. Let me know if we can be of any help or if you have an idea to share.
