Welcome to Slow Money NC!
Please look around our website and meet the 50+ marvelous farmers and local food entrepreneurs who have received over 115 Slow Money loans from generous locavores in their communities throughout North Carolina.
Or how to become a potential Slow Money lender.
You can also read about how Slow Money NC got started in 2010, why people lend, why eat locally, sustainably produced food and how we can build resilience in our local food economies in Financing Our Foodshed: Growing Local Food With Slow Money.
The author, Carol Peppe Hewitt is co-founder and principal ‘matchmaker’ of Slow Money NC. Her book features the first 22 farmers and food entrepreneurs that received Slow Money loans in NC. It is a blueprint for creating a Slow Money network, and for getting Slow Money loans happening in your community.
