A friend of mine is involved in the efforts to help out the small farmers here in Boulder County and other northeastern Colorado counties following the devastating flood which happened two months ago.
Here is a brief summary from him about this most worthy cause:
Local Food Shift Group (a Boulder Colorado-based non-profit) has partnered with the Community Foundation of Boulder County to create the Front Range Farm Relief Fund (see video below).
The Fund will provide grants to small farmers, ranchers, growers, beekeepers and other food businesses in ten front range and northeastern Colorado counties hit hard by the “biblical” flood that hit the area in the middle of September.
Applicants to the fund are small, diverse farmers, ranchers, growers and food producers who do not qualify for federal flood insurance, FEMA benefits or other government aid programs.
By clicking the link below, you will be directed to the Community Foundation’s secure donation site, where you can select the amount you want to give and your payment method.
Select “Front Range Farm Relief Fund” from the pulldown menu under “I want my donation to be designated toward:” to apply your donation toward this fund.
Thank you for your support!
