Attending Slow Money Maine on Wednesday

I’ll be in Augusta on Wednesday, first attending the Maine State Chamber of Commerce’s fifth annual Business Day at the Statehouse and later joining Slow Money Maine’s bi-monthly meeting.

Slow Money Maine, if you’re not aware, is a loose network of individuals and organizations that help facilitate the flow of capital (both financial and human) into home-grown food and agricultural businesses throughout the state. Companies such as Maine Grains, which operates a grist mill in Skowhegan, and MOOMilk, a group of organic dairy farmers in Maine, have both received investments from members of Slow Money Maine.

If you’re interested in learning more about the group and investing in Maine’s home-grown ag businesses, look out for my feature article that will be published in the next week.
