Event Description

People are waking up to the importance of the soil. Soil fertility is vital for human health, resilient communities and strategies for combating climate change.

But most people don’t talk about soil and money in the same breath.

Since 2010, tens of thousands of us in dozens of communities have begun supporting local food enterprises that are building healthy soil. Through public meetings large and small, local networks, and lots of peer-to-peer learning, we’ve steered more than $57 million into 632 soil-building food enterprises.

Meet the thought leaders, activists, farmers, food entrepreneurs, and investors who are leading the charge around the country. We’ll be exploring everything from soil biology to human health to investing in local food systems. A full day of speaker presentations and discussions, followed by a special evening program: a talk by Winona LaDuke, and a showing of the new documentary on Wendell Berry’s life.

Pre-Event Workshop:  Align Your Investments with Your Values!

Global finance is an opaque landscape for individual investors. All too often, our investments can end up tied to socially and environmentally harmful industries without our knowledge. How can we empower ourselves to act in this sphere, and direct our money toward worthy and positive businesses?

If you long to operate with integrity in all parts of your life but feel under-equipped or bewildered by the idea of aligning your investments with your values, the EK4T workshop is a chance to empower yourself by learning essential portfolio management skills and link your financial resources with local resilience.

Day 1: Bringing together a group of renowned speakers to explore the relationship between the actual soil and the soil of a restorative economy. Join us for a full day of presentations, discussions, and productive collaboration, followed by a special evening program.

Day 2: This is an opportunity for up to 125 people to focus on SOIL—Slow Opportunities for Investing Locally—our new Colorado initiative. We’ll explore the state of the local food system and what success would look like for this new program. The day will culminate with members of  SOIL selecting one or more farmers/food entrepreneurs to receive 0% loans.
