Be Part of the Solution: Join the Slow Money Movement

0 1

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.

Unacceptable Levels

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

Overfed and Undernourished

“We live in a world with increasing levels of Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes and Obesity. Over 70% of foods we consume on a daily basis are processed, and according to the World Health Organization, if current trends continue one billion people will be obese by 2030.

With our fast paced lives, we have become reliant and connected to devices, TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones and disconnected with the natural world, and the people around us.

“Overfed & Undernourished” examines modern lifestyles and a global epidemic through one boy’s inspiring story to regain his health from the inside out. After heartache, Liam, weighing in at over 80kgs (176lbs) turns to his Aunty & Uncle for help, and embarks on a journey where we witness the highs and lows, a family unite for a common cause, and the promise of transforming his life forever.

With 25% of children and 74% of adults obese or overweight, Liam’s problem is not uncommon, but, as the film illustrates, the treatment is more readily attainable than most people think.

This ground breaking documentary is interspersed with interviews and advice from leading health and wellbeing experts from around the globe and provides us with simple solutions to improve the quality of our diet, lifestyle, and personal bonds, ultimately asking us the fundamental question – are we really nourishing ourselves?

Featuring: Joe Cross (Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead), Dr. John Demartini (The Secret), Dr. Anthony Gollé, Dr. Arne Rubinstein and Don Tolman."
