The writer notes the differences between Yerdle and other similar bartering platforms, Noting that “fun” is a component of the program…
Amusement is closely aligned with Yerdle’s mission to build a community that not only inherits and passes things along, but also enjoys the process. Everyone loves getting something for free.

Now available on Amazon, the final book of The Secrets of Clayton Trilogy, Homeconing, the saga of Sarah and Kent Crodin and how bartering impacted their lives, and the lives of the community in which they lived in rural Iowa.
