LV Dough, a local currency for Lehigh & Northampton Counties is coming soon!

Here are some suggested readings on why & how it strengthens community.

“We cannot arrive at a healthy economic process unless, in the first place, it is made possible for people to have something to give and, in the second place, unless they have the goodwill and intelligence to give what they have.” – Rudolf Steiner, Economics: The World as One Economy
