Anna Harris, Lily Harris and Abbie Atkinson volunteer by planting flowers in the planters along Flaming Gorge Way. Another Harris child, Mary, waters the flowers. Budget cuts resulted in only half the planters being filled this summer.

Flower planters along Flaming Gorge Way are up for adoption this summer as budget cuts have resulted in fewer plants along Green River's main street.

According to URA and Main Street Administrator Jennie Melvin, Main Street was able to only pay for planting flowers in only half the planters along the street. She said the city pays the Harris family to water the plants, but they donate their time to plant the flowers.

The cuts have caused Main Street to start an adoption program to allow businesses and residents to take an open planter and grow flowers.
