Local Food, Local Fuel, and Local Finance

Local Food, Local Fuel, Local FinanceBuilding a vibrant local economy requires many interlocking pieces — from local food, to local fuel, to the local finances to bring these initiatives to fruition. 

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.

Join Us November 6th at 6pm at the Staunton Makerspace for the full event.  You can RSVP or invite more friends online here.
