Broad Ripple Inc is working to further its passions for sustainability, habitat restoration, species protection, and overall paradigm shifting by working to organize Roots Regeneration. The present status of Roots Regeneration is in the grassroots. There is a strategy for organizing, and it starts with the web platform that we are using here on this site in beta testing.
Roots Regeneration – a systems-thinking approach towards building community, fostering sustainability and resilience, and regenerating ecology.
Roots Regeneration works to revive our connections with nature, restore ecosystems, and foster local resilience, sustainability, and wellness.
Key Roots Regeneration Programs and Projects:
Local First Indy: Because local economy matters. Support businesses that support community. Local First Central Indiana works to support regional localism. The arguments for local economics are many, including but not limited to these (for example). Local First Central Indiana will also work to create resource sharing among businesses, local procurement in private-public partnerships, and actively assist local businesses towards sustainability-minded objectives, such as zero waste and renewable energy.
Slow Money Indiana: A companion to the Slow Food movement, Slow Money Indiana would be the Indiana chapter of The Slow Money Alliance. The Slow Money Principles are as follows:
The Slow Money Principles
In order to enhance food security, food safety and food access; improve nutrition and health; promote cultural, ecological and economic diversity; and accelerate the transition from an economy based on extraction and consumption to an economy based on preservation and restoration, we do hereby affirm the following Slow Money Principles:
- We must bring money back down to earth.
- There is such a thing as money that is too fast, companies that are too big, finance that is too complex. Therefore, we must slow our money down — not all of it, of course, but enough to matter.
- The 20th Century was the era of Buy Low/Sell High and Wealth Now/Philanthropy Later, what one venture capitalist called "the largest legal accumulation of wealth in history." The 21st Century will be the era of nurture capital, built around principles of carrying capacity, care of the commons, sense of place and non-violence.
- We must learn to invest as if food, farms and fertility mattered. We must connect investors to the places where they live, creating vital relationships and new sources of capital for small food enterprises.
- Let us celebrate the new generation of entrepreneurs, consumers and investors who are showing the way from Making A Killing to Making a Living.
- Paul Newman said, "I just happen to think that in life we need to be a little like the farmer who puts back into the soil what he takes out." Recognizing the wisdom of these words, let us begin rebuilding our economy from the ground up, asking:
- What would the world be like if we invested 50% of our assets within 50 miles of where we live?
- What if there were a new generation of companies that gave away 50% of their profits?
- What if there were 50% more organic matter in our soil 50 years from now?
Transition Indy: Transition Initiatives are plans for communities to converge and gather around the ideas of "transitioning" from the affordable carbon economy, to the next economy. This concept might be best represented by the notions of working to gauge our local carbon consumption requirements, and supplement them with renewable energy sourcing, as well as energy descent programs that can lead us to a place where we can be more satisfied for having decreased our contributions to inefficient systems. Other great initiatives that are synonymous with Transition Initiatives are lawn sharing, seed sharing, ride sharing, skill sharing, re-skilling, energy descent plans, building energy efficiency overhauls, urban agriculture and food forestry, and more.
