Columbia Heights Firefighter's Association Garden


The Columbia Heights Firefighter’s Association (Employee Association) recently planted a garden at the Public Safety building. Once harvested, the produce will be donated to SACA.

The idea came about after Assistant Fire Chief Daniel O’Brien planted some seeds at home and he didn’t have enough space for all the plants. After talking with members of the fire department and the City, the Columbia Heights Firefighter’s Association could plant the garden and then donate the produce to SACA.

“I think SACA is a great organization,” O’Brien said. “They’ve been around here a long time and it’s nice to [donate the produce].”

The garden includes broccoli, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, and zucchini.
