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.
