> Slow Money. It's a new economic vision. It's an emerging network of
> investors, donors, entrepreneurs, farmers, and activists committed to
> building local food systems and local economies. It's about the soil of the
> economy. It's the beginning of the "nurture capital" industry.
> Come to Santa Fe. Meet thought leaders and change agents from around the
> country. Let's build new capital markets that support preservation and
> restoration. Let's fix America's economy... from the ground up.
