Creating Community Currency Loops

Piggybacking on Guillaume's blog about funding public art through community currencies, I will go back to the idea of veggies shares.
* The urban farming or CSA project would issue acknowledgments of veggie shares currency to any people and businesses for in-kind (time or supplies) or monetary donations made to the project.
* Restaurants, grocery stores, and farmers market vendors could show their support by agreeing to accept some of these acknowledgments (veggie shares) for partial payment of goods/services they provide.
* Those businesses could then use the currency to buy food from these projects if so desired.

  1. Jct: Go for it. That's how community currencies are supposed to work, and work even better when there's shortage of orthodox money.
