Photo Gallery: Communities in Bloom launches first project | May 9, 2015

Communities in Bloom, a nonprofit organization aimed at improving the lives of the most needy of South Florida organization, launched its first project in Casa Valentina Saturday May 9, 2015. The organization is directed by Sophia Arana and Evely Forte, both high school students from Our Lady of Lourdes Academy. Their goal is to have local nurseries donate plants to help beautify the patios and gardens of foster care homes, orphanages and homeless shelters. CIB will build butterfly gardens, meditation gardens and nurseries. Costa Farms, along with other local nurseries and Forte Farms, have joined the effort by donating plants. "We know the value of green spaces add to the community and are happy to contribute to the effort," said Joche Smith, CEO of Costa Farms.
