15 slow money projects we’d like to see in Orlando


As seen in this week's issue, slow money has already started to make its way into Orlando's entrepreneurial minds. East End Market, still in its first year of operation, is already having obvious effects on our community and showing the benefits of investing in grass-roots, sustainable food systems. IDEAS for Us and their hive of change-making volunteers have started a bike-based carrot mob (see Fleet Farming) that will farm your front yard for you and sell the produce to local markets. But what other game-changing ideas are out there, just waiting to take Orlando by storm?

We asked our calendar editor, Brendan O'Connor, a lover of the slow money movement, to give us some slow money ideas that he'd like to see happen in Orlando.
