SALT LAKE CITY — Red Butte Garden is seeking an additional $1 million to bring its planned water conservation garden to life.
In May, the garden received a $3 million challenge grant from the Alternative Visions Fund from the Chicago Community Foundation to design and build a 3-acre water conservation garden on the hillside north of its children's garden.
To receive the money, the challenge grant requires Red Butte Garden to raise an additional $3 million in matching funds by Feb. 1, 2013. The Dumke family has pledged an additional $2 million toward the match. Every dollar donated now brings five matching dollars to the garden.
This garden will test, display and interpret water-wise landscaping principles, including plant selection, irrigation techniques, landscape design and maintenance. Red Butte Garden also plans to add educational programs about water conservation.
