We're Tops in the "Slow Money" Nation

We must learn to invest as if food, farms and fertility mattered.
We must connect investors to the places where they live, creating vital relationships and new sources of capital for small food enterprises.

- Slow Money Principle #3


With your support, Dandelion placed fifth in the nation out of over 600 integrity oriented businesses. Thank you for shining the light of Orlando in front of the nation. We know that light has been seen and look forward to witnessing how local investors find new ways to connect with local food producers to help our local food movement reach critical mass and long term sustainability.


Stay tuned for more Slow Money news!


Let us celebrate the new generation of entrepreneurs, consumers & investors who are showing the way from Making A Killing to Making a Living. 

- SM Principal #5
