Awesome-foundation-regThe latest Awesome Foundation has been born in Grey County, bringing a new level of awesomeness to the City of Owen Sound. Twelve awesome individuals have pledged $100 each to help make their community a more awesome place, one great idea and one cash-filled brown paper bag at a time.

Individuals located in the greater Owen Sound area are invited to pitch their best idea to help make greater Owen Sound an even more awesome place to live, work and play. All who are located within 20 kilometers of Owen Sound city hall are invited to email a pitch of up to 300 words to [email protected] by April 15, 2015. The 12 Awesome Trustees will narrow down the submissions to three great community-minded ideas that “make awesome happen”.

Cathy-Hird-flowersA hint of spring is in the air, a breath of fresh air, and a touch of warmth in the sun. This is a time of renewal. I wonder, in your life, what brings you this refreshing gift?

SlowMoney-Turtle.colour-featureYou all know the importance of eating locally, what about lending locally?
Come join us on March 28th from 10 to 12 for a vital conversation about Slow Money, the quiet revolution that is changing the way people think about their investments.
In communities throughout North America, groups of caring folks are making affordable, low-interest, peer-to-peer loans to sustainable food and farming businesses in their communities. The result is that, rather than making a killing, these dollars are enabling farmers and food business operators to make a living. And rather than reaping the rewards in terms of high financial returns, the returns these lenders see are all around them – in new, locally owned businesses and farms that take care of one another and the soil.
