Thousands of Americans have begun affirming a new direction for our economy. It’s called Slow Money.
Inspired by the vision of Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing As If Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered, Slow Money is bringing people together around a new conversation about money that is too fast, finance that is disconnected from people and place, and how we can start rebuilding our economy from the ground up… starting with food.
Through Slow Money gatherings, regional events, and local activities, more than $30 million has been invested in 221 small food enterprises nationwide since mid-2010.
With a chapter of the international Slow Money network emerging here in Sarasota and an investment club currently in formation, now is the perfect time to learn more about the concept and get involved - as an investor, entrepreneur, or community food activist.
This presentation by Don Hall, Director of Transition Sarasota, is part of Sarasota County Government's monthly Sustainable Sarasota Community Partnership Meeting, and is free and open to the public.
