Nurture Capital in Theory and Practice

300 committee
Tony Andrew's Farm in Falmouth

In 2008 Woody Tasch coined the term "slow money," a reference to the "slow food" movement, but applied to economies and investment that respect nature and humanity. Ten years and one economic recession later, we talk with him about the success of the slow money movement. We also discuss how nurture capital might support the local food and farming movement in our region.

Guests on the program are Woody Tasch, author and visionary.  His book is SOIL - Notes Toward the Theory and Practice of Nurture Capital.

Karen Schwalbe, Executuve Director of the Southeastern Massachussets Agricultural Partnership.

Woody Tasch speaks during a free presentation Friday, October 12, 7:15 p.m., at the Nantucket Yacht Club, sponsored by Sustainable Nantucket.
