Farm to School Central Coast is connecting small and mid-sized farms to school districts so that farmers get more sales and schools get fresher food!


We have been honored to work with so many amazing community businesses! Listen in to what they have taken away from their participation with Slow Money SLO.

“I found the food service director through a Slow Money SLO farmer-to-buyer mixer...I have an heirloom variety of melon...I thought it would be a good fit because kids love watermelon, I can grow them to pique ripeness and they’ll be like nothing the kids have ever tasted. The schools were the only buyer that could take 1,000 pounds of melon.”

“When we were ready to do the Kiva loan, Slow Money SLO said they would be the trustee which gave us more validity and backing. They promoted our campaign in their newsletter, which brought in more lenders and new customers. That was awesome!”
