With the decline in the number of Black Farmers Globally Save Black Farmers looks to help black farmers recover and get back to farming after natural and man made disasters
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Every year and season there are floods, hurricanes, tornados, fires and various natural disaster that destroy towns, and cities like the Tenessee Floods of 2010. There is recovery for towns, and cities, and even home owners to fix up and keep thriving after a disaster.

With the growing decline to Black Farmers, a natural disaster just helps reduce the 1 % of black farms.
