FARMINGTON — Author Woody Tasch will discuss and sign copies of his book, “Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered,” from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 12, in Olsen Student Center at the University of Maine at Farmington.

Tasch will also give a presentation Tuesday at 2 p.m. as part of the statewide conference on investing in local agriculture also being held at UMF.

Tasch promotes rebuilding the economy by asking questions such as “What would the world be like if we invested 50 percent of our assets within 50 miles of where we live?”

The Slow Money Alliance was started by Tasch less than a year ago to raise awareness and resources to support sustainable agriculture.
