Wheels Beginning to Turn

Posted in All Items tagged , , , , , at 12:12 pm by nashfof

Dedicated to catalyzing the flow of capital to enterprises that support soil fertility and local food communities.

an excerpt from “Will The Real Food Movement Please Stand Up?” Woody Tasch’s most recent musings:

This enterprise that we are a part of, with its new organic farmers and the host of small food enterprises that are emerging to bring their produce to market, is about an economy that does less harm. It’s about rebuilding trust and reconnecting to one another and the places where we live. It’s about healing the social and ecological relationships that have been broken by hundreds of years of linear, extractive pursuit of economic growth, industrialization, globalization and consumerism. It’s about pulling some of our money out of ever-accelerating financial markets and its myriad abstractions—called, with more than a little irony, securities—and putting it to work near where we live, in things that we understand, starting with food—creating a more immediate and tangible kind of security.
