The Indiana Slow Money Network
What would the world be like if we invested 50% of our assets within 50 miles of where we live?
We invite you to join us on Saturday March 10 at 1:00 p.m. in pioneering a new way to support local food systems and sustainable agriculture in Indiana (Wayne County area). It’s called Slow Opportunities for Investing Locally – SOIL. This isn’t investing in the traditional sense. We’re using charitable donations and 0% loans to fund the next generation of diversified, organic farms, small food enterprises and artisans that bring their produce to the local market.
Since 2010, over $57 million has been invested in more than 632 local and organic food enterprises through the Slow Money network. We all know it is important to reduce dysfunction in our national political and financial systems, but it’s just as important to invest in the future we all want to see in our communities. A healthy local food system is the place to start. Through local networks, public meetings large and small, and lots of peer-to-peer learning the Slow Money network has been able to advance 632 small food enterprises across the country. Let’s fix the economy from the ground up starting with food.
Please join us on Saturday at the Innovation Center downtown to participate in a local discussion about what the needs are locally in the sustainable food and artisan world. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.
