A Focus on Slow Money
Slow Money national gatherings are a significant new venue for field building, investing and social change. More than 1000 people from 34 states and several foreign countries attended the first two Slow Money national gatherings in the U.S., and more than $4.25 million has been invested in 16 of the presenting small food enterprises.
The Slow Money Principles
A set of Slow Money Principles has been developed. The core of these principles is “to enhance food security, food safety and food access; improve nutrition and health; promote cultural, ecological and economic diversity; and accelerate the transition from an economy based on extraction and consumption to an economy based on preservation and restoration.”
Just imagine: “What would the world be like if we invested 50% of our assets within 50 miles of where we live? What if there were a new generation of companies that gave away 50% of their profits? What if there were 50% more organic matter in our soil 50 years from now?” (Source: Slow Money)
Be a part of this emerging community that wants to know where our food comes from, where our money goes, and what steps we can all take together to bring money back down to earth.
