Slow Money Northern California Regional Showcase 2011

The first Entrepreneur Showcase of Slow Money Northern California!
Slow Money is excited to bring together 200+ investors, entrepreneurs and food & farming leaders who are rebuilding our local food system. Learn how you can get involved and invest in building an economy based on principles of soil fertility, sense of place, care of the commons, and economic, cultural and biological diversity.

Following the Slow Money National showcases over the past two years, millions of dollars have been invested in entrepreneurs who presented their small food enterprises. This event is your chance to invest your resources close to home.

Examples of investment proposals include:

· Strengthen the distribution from small farms into Bay Area cities

· Build a facility for processing grass-fed meat locally

· Convert and protect regional farmland for organic farmers

· Provide healthy food alternatives for low income neighborhoods

Featured speakers include Woody Tasch, Slow Money founder and Author, and Ari Derfel, Executive Director of the national Slow Money organization.

Network with active investors, organizational leaders, local food exhibitors, and visionaries of local food systems.
Be inspired and learn more about Slow Money in our region and nationwide.
