After the plant sale, Red Butte Garden donates many un-purchased plants to local non-profit organizations as well as to University of Utah campus programs. Some of the organizations that receive our vegetables and herbs use them to support their own mission of increasing healthy food access and education to people in need, such as New Roots/IRC, Real Food Rising and the community gardens at the University of Utah. Some organizations use gardening as a part of their rehabilitation programs, such as Cancer Wellness House, Neighborhood House and the Sharing Place. We also donate plants and trees to the University of Utah Grounds Department.
