Hurricane Harvey had a devastating impact on farms and ranches in Texas and Louisiana. Although the full extent of damage will not be known for weeks, many relief efforts are getting underway. One rapid-response campaign that's already up and running on Barnraiser aims to raise $40,000 in 26 days to support 80 sustainable and organic farmers with emergency cash of $500 each to help them with immediate expenses such as gas, groceries, and building materials. Farmers impacted by the storm may submit applications here. Donations to the campaign can be made through the Barnraiser website.
