Announcing our next big event, where we’ll shift our focus from local foodsheds to inspiring economic models. If we truly want to build up Main Street rather than bail out Wall Street, we’ll need a different set of economic tools and strategies than the ones that got us here. Several presentations will highlight strategies for local banking and investment, the Slow Money movement for investing in local food, and Michiana’s own local currency project. We’ll then have a larger panel discussion to talk about how these and other strategies can help create a more resilient local economy from the bottom up. We hope you can join us!
