Community Gardens


Collaborating with the Fresno County Department of Behavioral Health the FIRM Horticultural Therapeutic Community Center (HTCC) is funded through the Mental Health Services Act.  Across the Fresno and Clovis areas, FIRM facilitates five community gardens for refugee families in order to support food security, physical and mental health.  Gardeners at each site participate in monthly peer support groups, mental health workshops and quarterly special events that focus on health and gardening!  Here are the current sites that FIRM is operating and the communities they serve:
