Voices of folks who want to know where their food comes from, where their money goes, and how we can all work together to fix the economy from the ground up.
Since 2010, over $57 million has been invested in more than 632 local and organic food enterprises through our network.
We all know it’s important to reduce dysfunction in our national political and financial systems, but it’s just as important—maybe even more 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, we’ve steered more than $57 million into more than 632 small food enterprises near where we live.
In Carbondale, Colorado, Harper and Christian received a $7,500 loan to help them purchase materials for a mobile walk-in cooler and drip-irrigation system.
Let’s fix the economy from the ground up, starting with food.
Do you believe that your health, the economy’s health and the environment’s health would all be significantly improved if there were a million new small and mid-sized organic farms in the United States? Join in and get started:
Too often, violence is in our face. Charlottesville. Las Vegas. North Korea nuclear saber rattling. And too often, it’s as quiet as an algorithm. As innocuous as a drive to the supermarket. As shelf-stable as a Twinkie.

The world of investing abides by various rules. Some are defined and articulated in formal legislation and regulations, while others are based on customs, common practices, and opinions expressed by jurists in court cases. The expectation of “prudence” in financial management is one such case.
People are getting so sick because they aren’t connected to a healthy food system. Medicine is putting out fires, it gets to people way too late. We need to work upstream, outside the medical model.
