Slow Money takes root in Maine, NY, California

This is exciting: the vision behind Slow Money, which aims to provide ways for people to invest in local agriculture and economies, is quickly finding real-world expressions from coast to coast!

Here’s an inspiring article about the No Small Potatoes “investment club” in Maine, which provides low-interest loans to farmers, a project of Slow Money Maine.  Similar regional Slow Money chapters in New York and San Francisco are holding “showcases” this spring to highlight efforts to bring together investors, entrepreneurs, and food activists: here’s an article on the recent New York event, and a preview of the upcoming San Francisco one.

See this earlier NI post on Slow Money, and a more recent one on NI’s Michael Kramer’s role in helping catalyze municipal bonds to support local agricultural initiatives.
