Slow Money is excited to bring together 200+ investors, sustainable food entrepreneurs and leaders working together to rebuild our Local Food System. Learn about investment opportunities and how you can participate in rebuilding local economies based on principles of soil fertility, sense of place, care of the commons, and economic, cultural and biological diversity.
Over the past two years, several million dollars have been invested in small food enterprises who presented at Slow Money showcases. Now is your chance to invest close to home:

  • Hear from 12 finalists (chosen from more than 50 applicants) seeking investment in their small food enterprises: Marin and Brentwood Agricultural Land Trusts, Capay Valley Farm Shop, Farmland LP, Frog Hollow Farm, Growing Youth Project (Alameda Point Collaborative), Mandela Foods Cooperative, Marin Sun Farms, People’s Community Market, Point Reyes Compost Company, Planting Justice, Value-Added Processing for Small Farmers, Veritable Vegetable.

For investors, the Entrepreneur Showcase will provide access to sustainable food and farming businesses at different stages of development from start-up to expansion of existing businesses. The businesses and initiatives are also seeking different levels of financing — from small loans to major capital, as well as donations. Slow Money Northern California encourages investors of all resource levels to attend including institutional, individual, accredited, and unaccredited investors. This showcase event itself is not an offer to sell securities nor a solicitation of an offer to buy securities.” More information and registration now available at
