We’re fixing the economy from the ground up, starting with food.

Slow Money is a new way to invest. And it’s a movement. Slow Money local networks and investment clubs are forming in scores of communities across the US, Canada, and France. We’re sharing, learning and building local food systems together.

This is how we do it.
