Saturday: Slow Money events at First UU and The Crest Gastropub

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
