Be Part of the Solution: Join the Slow Money Movement

Michael Barnter, VP Slow Money & Green Diva Lisa

In my travels up to Kennebunkport, ME, I ran into Michael Bartner, VP of Slow Money.org. Turns out he is a  childhood friend of my future daughter-in-law.  In March of 2011 we spoke with the founder Slow Money and author the book Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered, Woody Tasch, on The Green Divas Radio Show. Slow Money asks us to put our money where our mouth is — literally. If we model our investments after the principles of nurturing soil with care and diversification, we support the growing of healthy local food in our communities while building and nurturing the local economy.  Oh and we get healthier in return. We are all affected by the loss of that nurturing and we can all benefit from returning to our ancient future (a term coined by my good friend Alex). Slow Money’s relationship to investment is the opposite of what fast food is to cuisine.

Michael sent me their most recent report and it is full of good news. “More than $19 million has been invested in 139 small food enterprises.” And the future looks even better.

I highly recommend reading the book which is about much more than finance and food.  Check it out and become part of the movement. Make the pledge to the Slow Money Principles and be part of the solution, I did.

Entrepreneur Magazine says “The Slow Money movement is one of the top five trends in finance.

Kudos to the Slow Money Vision and all those working on it. I look forward to seeing this movement grow.

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
