Steps are being taken to beautify the valley this summer.
Residents of Drumheller are encouraged to participate in the 'Adopt a Plant' Program.
"We wanted to show that the people of Drumheller love Drumheller," explained Dave Carter, program organizer. "We thought what a better way than to take advantage of availability to put flower pots on hanging racks downtown and we're looking to try to expand it throughout the whole valley utilizing all the pots that the town put out."
The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Drumheller, D.A.R.T.S, local business owners and community members collaborated to implement the program.
"Jungling Works has graciously supplied us with a mobile watering system so that the residents of D.A.R.T.S that are apart of the watering team can do the watering," said Carter. "Between the water and the mobile watering system that takes a great burden off the program."
The total cost is $40 for a flower pot and there are 15 pots available this year.
"All the people are doing is covering the cost for the flower pot and the fertilizer," added Carter. "When we expand into the other pots that the town has it will be depend as to what the cost of putting the flowers in the pots are. So you don't have to water or anything else, it's all looked after for you."
