Every food dollar we spend supports some agricultural business—be it a farm, a restaurant, a grocer, a distributor, an aggregator, a processor, or a marketer. This event will demonstrate that the Slow Money approach is not just for investors and entrepreneurs, but for everyone who partakes of local food.
Featuring the founder of Slow Money, Woody Tasch—along with Transition Colorado’s Michael Brownlee and several local food system innovators—this event will spark conversations and connections amongst local eaters, food and farming entrepreneurs, investors, intermediaries, food activists, and other interested parties.
The evening’s program will also illuminate specific vehicles available to people seeking to shift their investment dollars away from globalized systems and into local investments that fit with their values and that increase personal wealth, even as they build stronger, more self-reliant communities.
