Our future depends on strong financial support for our local food supply. It is vital to the resiliency of our health, our environment, and our economy.

To that end, we've joined the nationwide grassroots Slow Money movement to build a financial backbone for the Central Virginia foodshed. By providing farms fair, nimble, and transparent access to capital we're improving farm businesses and strengthening our local community.

Slow Money Central Virginia is affiliated with the Slow Money Institute, a nationwide non-profit launched in 2009 in Boulder, Colorado and inspired by the Slow Food movement. The Slow Money Institute is dedicated to catalyzing the flow of nurture capital to local food systems, connecting investors to the places where they live, and promoting new principles of fiduciary responsibility that “bring money back down to earth.”
