Big Red Trucks and Bigger Green Roofs

If you haven’t had a chance to see the lush greenery growing on the new St. Paul Fire Department Station No. 1, here’s a great opportunity!  The Fort Road Federation is sponsoring a West End Neighbors’ Garden Tour on Saturday, June 18th, from 10:00am to 4:00pm.  In addition to more than a dozen beautiful ground-level gardens, attendees will get to see one of the newest and most diversely planted green roofs in the state.  With a strong focus on public education, the green roof features native Minnesota plant species, an underground cistern that captures rainwater for irrigation, and a garden where firefighters grow their own vegetables.

St. Paul Fire Station No. 1

The fire station is located at 1000 7th St. West.  For more information on the tour, visit the Fort Road Federation’s website.  We hope to see you there!
