Slow Money Movement (old)

Since 2010, $80 million has flowed to over 800 organic farms and local food enterprises via volunteer-led efforts in dozens of communities. Tens of thousands of folks have attended Slow Money events, local and national.

A generation from now, I think we are going to look back on these first Slow Money events as seminal. Truly remarkable. Life-changing, really.
