Authors Carol Hewitt and Lyle Estill haven’t just been writing about these interlocking pieces of local economy, they’ve been building them. Carol founded Slow Money NC to help investors connect with local food entrepreneurs and community projects, and Lyle (author of Small is Possible) doubles as an alternative energy entrepreneur.
Join us for an evening of expanding the boundaries of WHAT is possible in building local economies, as well as a rousing discussion on WHY local support, local ownership, and local finance is so vital in driving these opportunities. And of course, meet local examples showing the way, while finding new ways to get involved as investors, entrepreneurs, supporters, or community members.
