November Slow News from the South Bay and Beyond

  • Slow Money held its 5th National Gathering in Louisville November 10-12. Approximately 800 people convened for 2 1/2 days of inspiring talks, entrepreneur presentations and great networking. If you would like to watch for yourself, the entire event is available on You Tube: Day 1 included a keynote by Joel Salatin; Day 2 included a panel with Wendell Berry and Louisville mayor Greg Fisher, that told us in part why Louisville is such a great farm-to-table city, and a keynote by Vandana Shiva; Day 3 included the Entrepreneur Showcases. Watch and be inspired yourself.
  • Rajnish Khanna of Global Food Scholar (October 2014) told us that one of the three legs of the company he is building will work on supporting the soil micro-biome. You can read more about the soil micro-biome in the article,Is This Fungus the Future of Farming? at Mother Jones.
  • Herb Moore, who with his band Elm Street entertained us at Farm Fest at Pie Ranch (2012) and at Farm Fest at Full Circle Farm (2014), is running a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of his new album, “River Time”. Support Herb and you can make sure that you’ll get your copy of the album.
