    Inspired by the vision of Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered published in 2009 by Woody Tasch, the Slow Money Alliance is bringing people together around a new conversation about money that is too fast, about finance that is disconnected from people and place, about how we can begin fixing our economy from the ground up...starting with food.
