Caring for Mother Nature: Cultivating Sustainable Well-being in Today’s Changing Climate with Phyllis Stiles & Woody Tasch

In this week's episode you will learn about: 

⦾ Investing in small, local farming communities

⦾ Pollinator decline & why it matters

⦾ How you can effect positive environmental social change

⦾ Making an impact with your money

Determined to mobilize communities across America to reverse pollinator decline, Phyllis Stiles founded the national program Bee City USA® in 2012. In 2018, Bee City USA merged with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation to expand the program's depth and reach. Stiles has served communities from West Africa to the Mississippi Delta, and nonprofits in fields from natural resource and farmland protection to civic leadership development. She enjoys hiking, trying to speak French, and attempting to play her upright bass. Her biggest pleasure comes from meeting champions for pollinators around the country and bearing witness to their creativity and passion.

Woody Tasch is the founder and Chairman of the Slow Money Institute — which has loaned over $57 million to over 600 small, organic food enterprises — and former Chairman and CEO of Investors Circle (IC), one of the oldest angel investor networks in the country dedicated to sustainability. Tasch is a frequent speaker and has been featured in the New York Times, Huffington Post, SF Chronicle, The Sun, and many other media outlets. Woody Tasch graduated Magna Cum Laude from Amherst College, where he won the Collin Armstrong Poetry Prize.
