Woody Tasch, Slow Money and Nurture Capital: A New Vision of Food, Money and Soil

in English

Since 2009, Slow Money founder Woody Tasch has been at the forefront of a new economic story—a story about bringing our money back down to earth. Published in late 2017, Woody’s new book SOIL: Notes Towards the Theory and Practice of Nurture Capital is poetic, photographic, and philosophical. German journalist Daniel Boese calls it “the Walden for the 21st century.”

It is about billions and trillions of dollars in the global economy, and billions and trillions of microbes in healthy, fertile soil. Nurture capital is a vision of finance that starts where investing and philanthropy leave off, giving us a new way to reconnect to one another and places where we live, all the way down to local food systems.

Come hear directly from Woody about his new book and Slow Money’s progress, including the $65 million invested in more than 728 small organic farms and local food businesses, via dozens of local groups in the United States, Canada, France and Australia.
