Does money keep you up at night? The O’Jays got it right, “Don’t let money rule you”. Yet, in our age, money does rule business, and it can make the difference between success and ruin.

Join SMSBF on March 6th, from 8:30 am to noon at the MSU Detroit Center, for “The Green that Grows: Financing and Funding for Land Based Businesses”.

“The Green that Grows” continues SMSBF’s commitment to supporting sustainable agriculture, locally based food systems and triple-bottom line businesses in Southeast Michigan.

Moving beyond the mid-scale level and expanding a farm or other land-based business is a real challenge. Understanding funding and financing options is not easy, especially for those who’d rather be working in the fields, than studying spreadsheets.

Those who are passionate about land-based businesses know the pressing needs and challenges, and they’re striving to meet them. We may be doing everything we can to use sustainable methods for our products and services, but are we doing what we can to ensure our businesses are sustainable? Urban agriculturalists, small farmers, organic and sustainable farmers, agriculture related business leaders and anyone interested in triple bottom line business practice will not want to miss this event.
