Slow Money is about connecting finance with people and place. Like the slow food movement, slow money is intentional, personal, and targeted to local communities — unlike the lightning-fast, impersonal, global financial dealings that led to the Great Recession of 2009.
Slow Money Ohio is organizing two special events in Columbus on Saturday, February 8:
- From 3 to 4 p.m. licensed CPA Michele Bertaux will share her experience with making her money count by converting her existing IRA to a self-directed checkbook IRA at the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 93 West Weisheimer Road. Michele is a member of the Southwestern Ohio Slow Money group. This workshop is free to all who attend the slow food dinner (see below).
- From 4:30 to 6 p.m., The Crest Gastropub at 2855 Indianola Avenue is hosting a slow food dinner with local farmers and local food producers: Swainway Urban Farm, Shagbark Seed and Mill, Lucky Penny Artisan Cheese, Dave's Artisanal Cheesecake, North High Brewery, Ohio Bison Farm, and The Crest Rooftop Gardens.
The cost for dinner is $30 (drinks and gratuity not included). Please make your reservations online from Brown Paper Tickets. For more information, contact Central Ohio Slow Money at (614) 261-7128 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
