SLOW Money and Nurture Capital: A New Vision of Food, Money, and Soil with Woody Tasch
Book Reading and Discussion with Slow Money founder Woody Tasch
Since 2009, Slow Money founder Woody Tasch has been at the forefront of advocating for an economic system that is connected to the needs of the planet. Woody’s new book SOIL: Notes Towards the Theory and Practice of Nurture Capital (2017) outlines this poetic, philosophical vision. 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.
