Growing up, Joshua Acevedo volunteered to help 2 churches in the Keys and Homosassa after Hurricane Andrew. Although, he is a graduate of Johnson & Wales University, and earned his culinary arts degree, he now owns Pure Green Landscaping. Originally from Illinois, he’s been in Sarasota since he was 8 years-old.
Prior to fleeing for Charleston, South Carolina, with his own family the days before Irma; Acevedo and his landscape business donated 60 hours of their time helping clients secure their personal property, turning their water, and electricity off.
