Slow Money Decelerator

This fall Slow Money is hosting our first Decelerator—bringing together all of us who care about Colorado food systems and want to find new ways to invest in them. The day-long event will take place at beautiful Lone Hawk Farm, north of Boulder. The day will feature presentations about the Hows and Whys of slowing our money down and plenty of time for small group discussions.

Changing the Culture and Changing Ourselves

/
In the late 1990s, after eight years working at Microsoft, my wife and I found ourselves on the receiving end of a financial windfall that freed us of the burden of nine-to-five jobs. Over time, our interests coalesced around the twin themes of food and community. We came to the realization that our contemporary food system has failed us at almost every level and that we need to work together with our community to imagine a new culture
 of food that is both abundant and resilient.

I Trust Cows More Than I Trust Chemists: A Conversation With Joan Gussow

/
How is it in this country we are so willing to look at technology and say that it will solve all of our problems? We always rush right in, let “progress” take over, and never imagine that it may have a negative effect on the overall society. I’m not sure why, but I felt this even in the very early days of the internet, when the excitement was so high.

State of the Soil

I am not a Democrat. I am not a Republican. I am not
 a political animal. I’m just an earthworm. An earthworm in the soil of a restorative economy.
