The Yosemite Village Permaculture Community Garden and Urban Farm Incubator (Yo’Ville) is a 7.5 acre fresh food production space planned and designed to collaboratively enlist and serve the residents of Southwest Fresno— an important community struggling with extreme poverty and health disparities, and significant environmental injustice and food hardship. The project site is on Fresno Housing Authority property south of the Yosemite Village Apartments along California Avenue between Fruit and West Avenues. Yo’Ville will feature fresh vegetable crops and fruit bearing trees integrated with native plants supported by a greenhouse and composting. The project’s goal is to increase food growing skills, nutrition education, access to and consumption of healthy food, improve the quality of the built and physical environment, and increase the overall health, resilience and economic opportunities of the residents of Southwest Fresno. Fresno Metro Ministry is actively looking for groups and individuals to come volunteer at the farm to help weed, spread mulch, and help with other various hands on tasks. We would love to see the community come together to help Fresno's first Urban Farm take off.
