Financing Our Foodshed:Growing Local Food With Slow Money tells the compelling stories of over twenty local farmers and food entrepreneurs that started or expanded their businesses with the help of one or more Slow Money loans.
Links to their websites, and more, will soon be listed here so you can find them easily!
Like Angelina’s Kitchen in Pittsboro, NC, recipient of the second Slow Money NC loan. Hungry for delicious, home-made Greek food? Head on over to Angelina’s and enjoy!
And there are a host of fabulous organizations, people, and groups that are helping build a stronger, more resilient foodshed and a healthier planet.
We will list them here as well.
Like our good friends at the Abundance Foundation, the fiscal sponsor of the Slow Money NC project.
Here’s a photo of a recent reception that Slow Money NC put on following their excellent day-long conference: “Farming Strategies in Today’s Changing Climate.”
“When the poetic fuses with the practical, the beauty of human potential reveals itself. As the unsustainability of our global economy steadily comes into ever greater focus, Carol’s heart warming Slow Money stories, and her determination to make them possible, offers a beacon for practical action centered on the idea that the purpose of finance is to serve life, and not the other way around. Financing Our Foodshed is poetry in motion!”
