Slow Money Central Virginia formed in 2018 with a mission to support the financial needs of small farms and other food entrepreneurs in the region surrounding the cities of Richmond and Charlottesville. We do so by pooling charitable contributions from citizens who want to make an impact on their local food system and providing revolving loans to farmers and food entrepreneurs who need capital and are dedicated to using resilient, eco-friendly practices that produce healthy, delicious, nutritious food for our local community.

β€œTo cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival.”
— Wendell Berry
