Thanks for visiting! Charity Blooms was founded in 2017 by 3 friends who wanted to help others by starting a non-profit farm. Today, we manage multiple properties across Aurora. Our goal is to provide free, fresh produce to our community. We have no paid staff or experience in agriculture. Just a passion for what we do.
