What do you do if you’re inspired by what you’ve seen in these pages to take action? If you have talent, stuff, or money to invest in local food systems? If you think people in the community need access to the kind of nutrition fresh, local food provides?
You can join the party this Sunday, January 13, when Local Loans for Local Food will be hosting a kick off and networking gathering to facilitate just these initiatives. Local Loans for Local Food is a Cincinnati Slow Money organization.
Inspired by the 2009 book, Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing As If Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered, by Woody Tasch, the Slow Money Alliance seeks to change our economic priorities, beginning with food. The Cincinnati vision for this initiative does not directly make loans, but is a peer-to-peer lending network. They are also interested in putting together those who may have resources, such as land, or a commercial kitchen, with anyone who is interested in taking advantage of them.
Those who have capital, or other resources, as well as interested community members, are invited to the gathering at the Peterloon Estate, 8605 Hopewell Road, in Montgomery, from 2 – 4 PM this Sunday.
