Slow Food, Slow Money
Ari Derfel, Executive Director, Slow Money
At the same time that the sustainable, local food movement grows in popularity, the economy is struggling out of recession. Is slowing our money down and bringing it back to earth part of the solution? Slow Money thinks so. The organization aims to promote the use of money to enhance our food security, food safety and food access; improve nutrition and health; promote cultural, ecological and economic diversity; and accelerate the transition from an economy based on extraction and consumption to an economy based on preservation and restoration. In a time where billionaires are pledging half their fortunes to charity, Slow Money’s time may have arrived.
