Check the listings as there may be items very suitable as gifts in this season of giving. Again, all the very best to all in health and happiness for a prosperous 2016.

Bluewater Trading Community Market Day survey launched

The Bluewater Trading Community (BTC) has created a short questionnaire for its members using Survey Monkey. This suvey polls the BTC membership for their thoughts and ideas concerning meeting face-to-face in a market day setting at which members are present at tables and exchanging goods and/or services. Typically the public is also invited to Market Days, and they provide a good opportunity for the BTC to promote it's aims and goals as a local exchange and trading system. 

BTC holds informative Q & A

On Friday evening, February 20th, at the wonderful Bleeding Carrot restaurant in Owen Sound, the Bluewater Trading Community core group held an informative question and answer session, with a number of interested members and potential members on hand.

The questions were broad-ranging, from "how are taxes addressed?" to "When are we thinking of doing a Market Day?" Much discussion focussed on how we value goods and services we have, and how trades might occur.
