Slow Money: invest in local food systems to save the economy and the planet

We need to bring our money back down to earth. Anyone with a 401K or an IRA account is an investor, and we investors need to reconnect to the places where we live. 

Think about it: if we invest just 1% of that money in local food instead of Wall Street gimmicks, we’d grow carrots instead of derivatives, beets instead of bonuses. We’d create a thriving economy that makes real, healthy food, instead of a fake one that just makes money for bankers. Let’s invest our money where our food is.

We will be recognizing the wisdom of Paul Newman: “I just happen to think that in life we need to be a little like the farmer who puts back into the soil what he takes out.”
