“One of the most remarkable aspects of the launch of Slow Money has been the participation of our members and the emergence of the Slow Money Principles. Thank You. In this day of financial razzmatazz and uncertainty, 12,000 of us have taken the time to consider and affirm a new vision of money and the soil.
Now, Slow Money is ready to move from launch to full-scale implementation. Slow Money initiatives are emerging around the country, money is starting to flow and our momentum is building.

“The Slow Money Principles are the path to a new, healthy food system. Sign them and be counted!“
- Greg Steltenpohl, Founder, Odwalla
We couldn’t agree more with our friend Greg. It’s not just about transactions. It’s about relationships and values. It’s about a new way of thinking that will catalyze a major cultural and economic shift towards preservation and restoration.
PLEASE TAKE A FEW MOMENTS TO FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO TWO FRIENDS, so that they can read the Principles, and, we hope, join you and the rest of us who share abiding concerns about the fertility of our soil, the vitality of our culture and the health of our economy.
NPR calls us a movement. ACRES USA calls us a revolution. Business Week cited us as “one of the big ideas for 2010.”
We are still at the beginning. But what a promising beginning it is!
