Welcome to SOIL NC!

Since June, 2010 over $3 million has been invested in nearly 100 local and organic food enterprises in North Carolina through the Slow Money NC network, primarily via direct peer-to-peer low-interest loans and equity investments.  This is just a portion of the national Slow Money movement’s projects totaling over $50M. And it’s an excellent start.

But we can do so much more.

“Slow Opportunities for Investing Locally in North Carolina”

In 2017, in order to have even more impact – to help more farmers and local food enterprises – we are launching SOIL NC.

SOIL NC is a revolving loan fund that aggregates charitable contributions and makes 0% loans to small food enterprises. Over time, as loans are repaid, new loans are made.  As new contributions are received SOIL NC will grow into a significant and powerful resource to help strengthen the local food system in North Carolina.

You can read more about the details on this one page Information Sheet.
