Author Woody Tasch: Slow Money

Author Woody Tasch, featured on the Global Oneness Project website, will speak about slow money at RiverRun Bookstore. The event is free and open to the public.

This is a call to farms. A call to all who plant, grow, harvest, eat, hug, argue, clink, put up, squirrel away, fritter away, layaway, and otherwise regret that civility and community went that-a-way. A call to gather our wits – one farm at a time, one town at a time, one county at a time, one watershed at time, one refusal to argue about politics at a time, one sleeve rolled up at a time.

Just why is it, anyway, that the economy keeps growing, military spending keeps exploding, drug prices keep soaring, the stock market keeps lifting off, but the strength of our marriages, the health of our kids, the vitality of our Main Streets, and the fertility of our soil keep going down?

Tasch’s search for answers, encouraged by conversations with thousands of folks around the country, leads him to explore the boundaries between heart and mind, between finance and poetry, between fiduciary responsibility and free-range imagination.

“I love fertile soil, and, as much, I love fertile minds. Woody Tasch has one. His heart ain’t bad, either. He puts both to marvelous, and very important, effect in this book. It is a vital next step for all of us who care about food, farms, slow money and what lies ahead.” Eliot Coleman
