Red Butte Garden has announced plans to build a new water conservation garden to open in fall 2014 or spring 2015. “It’s going to be our most iconic garden,” says Greg Lee, executive director at Red Butte.
The three-acre garden will be developed on a hillside between the fragrance garden on the northwest and the children’s garden to the southwest. With the help of the entire community, Red Butte Garden met the Alternative Vision Fund’s $3 million Water Conservation Garden capital campaign challenge grant that will help fund the project. They need to raise an additional $500,000 to fully fund the project, which will include special environmental and educational features. Read more on the Red Butte Garden website.
