I will be at the SLOW MONEY Conference! Will you? Would love to meet you! Shelburne Farms, Vermont - June 9-11, 2010
Slow Money… It’s not an ISM (as in capitalism, socialism, consumerism, market fundamentalism…).
But it is a new way of connecting investors to local food systems, catalyzing new forms of social investing and philanthropy for the 21st century. Join the emerging
network of investors, donors, entrepreneurs, farmers, and activists who are giving birth to the nurture capital industry.
Come to Shelburne Farms, a working farm and forest and National Historic Landmark -- a setting uniquely imbued with the history of capitalism and a nonprofit organization dedicated to forging a new future through sustainability education, creating social enterprises and strengthening local food systems. Enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Champlain. Meet thought leaders and change agents from around the country who are joining in this exciting project: designing capital markets that go beyond extraction and consumption all the way to preservation and restoration… starting with food and soil fertility.
