   Slow Money 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. Come hear directly from Michael Bartner, Vice President of Slow Money Institute, about Slow Money's progress, including the $60 million invested in more than 650 small food enterprises via dozens of local networks and investment clubs.

   Bring a potluck dish to share, meal starts at 5:30, talk begins at about 6:00 - 6:15. Beverages will be provided. To reduce waste, please bring reusable plates, cups and utensils if you are able.
