A new, forward-thinking way of investing:

Slow Money’s 3rd National Gathering
Fort Mason, San Francisco
October 12-14, 2011

“The gathering was life changing. Welcome to a revolution!”
—Paul Tryba, THE FARM, Long Beach, CA

Looking for a new kind of social investing for the 21st century? If so, plan to join Slow Money’s emerging network of thought leaders, investors, donors, farmers, social entrepreneurs and everyday folks for their 3rd National Gathering this October in San Francisco. Three days of conversations, network building and action planning on an historic wharf in a food-loving town. What could be better?

The list of speakers is phenomenal: award-winning scientist, environmentalist and broadcaster David Suzuki; global thinker, scientist and acclaimed authorVandana Shiva, named by Forbes as “one of the seven most influential women in the world“; Wes Jackson, founder of The Land Institute, which for 30 years has conducted cutting-edge research on sustainable agriculture; Leslie Christian, CEO of Portfolio 21; and many more.

There will also be investment presentations from two dozen small food enterprises and break out sessions on topics ranging from New Visions of Corporate Philanthropy to Mapping Local Food Sheds, plus the opportunity to collaborate with folks from around the country who are finding new ways to connect money, culture and the soil—including members of the 11 chapters channeling millions of dollars into local small food enterprises.

The Slow Money National Gathering brings together people who are rebuilding local food systems across the U.S. and around the world. More than 1,000 people attended the first two national gatherings—resulting in more than $4.25 million invested in 16 small food enterprises!

    That’s great, I really would like to take part in Slow Money Gathering. I think it’s a very noble job to rebuild local food systems across the U.S. and around the world and I think it can become the great experience. There will be so many interesting people and it would be very interesting to learn from them. I think that it very good to make such things in life, it’s never too late to learn something new. I will consider taking part and maybe even apply for instant pay day loan to get there. It’s a great social investment and I really like the main idea of the gathering.
