Michael Linton is the original inventor of LETS, a system for tracking local trading that continues to be used in thousands of communities throughout the world. In 2009, Michael and his team launched a new model - Community Way - in the Comox Valley, which is soon to start in Nelson and Vancouver.

All are welcome.
