  • Soil 2017: Notes Towards the Theory and Practice of Nurture capital

    Since 2009, Slow Money founder Woody Tasch has been at the forefront of a new economic story—a story about bringing our money back down to earth.

    And it’s not just a story, it’s a movement that has catalyzed the flow of over $60 million to more than 625 small organic farms and local food businesses, via dozens of local groups in the U.S., Canada, France and Australia. SOIL: Notes Towards the Theory and Practice of Nurture Capital uses poetry, essays, and photography to explore a new vision of finance. It is about billions and trillions of dollars in the global economy, and billions and trillions of microbes in healthy, fertile soil. Nurture capital starts where investing and philanthropy leave off, giving us a new way to reconnect to one another and places where we live, all the way down to local food systems and the soil.
