What People Are Saying
“Combine poisonous factory-farm tomatoes with disgraced investment banker Bernard Madoff. Throw in a stock market disaster. You get a public spooked by the dangers of industrial food production and investors wary of risky business. This may be the recipe for a Slow Money revolution.”
– David Gutnick, CBC News
Slow Money National Gathering 2010
"There was a moment when I looked around the tent at Shelburne Farms to see the wonderful old codgers who have been farming in Vermont for generations, sitting with young environmentalists and food entrepreneurs and New York investment types, all nodding in agreement. Wow.
Talk about being the change we seek. It was a profoundly hopeful moment."
– Brian Byrnes, President and CEO,
   The Santa Fe Community Foundation
