hsfc is a not-for-profit health clinic offering free, quality medical and counseling services to people of all ages. hsfc serves low-income, uninsured or under-insured individuals. SuperLA® was introduced to hsfc in mid-2021 to help design the new garden space. after spending time with the leaders of the organization, SuperLA® elected to not only donate their design services, but to also donate the supplies, materials and labor to complete the renovation of the garden.

hsfc had not used the garden space for over 20+ years. It is now a space that their organization and staff can use to meet with clients and patients, and to educate them on the benefits of healthy eating and taking care of your mind.

SuperLA® plans to partner with additional community organizations in the Silver Lake and surrounding neighborhoods to complete similar projects over the years to come.

We hope we will inspire more individuals, groups and businesses to do the same.
