Slow Money and Nurture Capital: A New Vision of Food, Money and Soil

Wednesday, December 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

 Since 2009, Slow Money founder Woody Tasch has been at the forefront of a new economic story—a story about bringing our money back down to earth. Published in 2017, Woody’s new book SOIL: Notes Towards the Theory and Practice of Nurture Capital is poetic, photographic, philosophical and radical. It is about billions and trillions of dollars in the global economy, and billions and trillions of microbes in healthy, fertile soil. Nurture capital is a vision of finance that starts where investing and philanthropy leave off, giving us a new way to reconnect to one another and places where we live, all the way down to local food systems. Come hear directly from Woody about his new book and Slow Money’s progress, including the $60 million invested in more than 625 small organic farms and local food businesses, via dozens of local groups in the United States, Canada, France and Australia.

“Imagination that enables us to reckon our whereabouts in a world that is heating up and speeding up. Imagination that enables us to find our way past shallow punditry, tribal vitriol, global this and cyber that, past the hyper and the ultra and the mega. Imagination that leads us back to one another, to the places where we live, and to the land—not just the land of “this land is your land, this land is my land,” but also the soil itself, upon which all life depends.”
