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 helping others.
Rob has lived in Aurora for about 20 years. He is one of the original founding members. His background is in design and construction. His crazy ideas and ability to embrace any obstacle have led to the quick growth and huge impact we have made in such a short time.
