FALL GREENSCAPE FOR THE NATION’S ANNUAL “MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY”
Bulb ordering begins Monday, September 10
(Annapolis, MD, August 31, 2018) — Mayor Gavin Buckley and the Annapolis Recreation and Parks Department invite community members to participate in the nation’s annual Make A Difference Day by volunteering for the city’s fall GreenScape project on Saturday, October 27. Make a Difference Day is a national effort encouraging groups and individuals to volunteer in their community to improve the lives of others.
Volunteers participating in this year’s fall GreenScape are encouraged to take part in the Journey North Tulip Test Gardens initiative. By participating, you will help scientists track season and climate changes around the world. When your tulips emerge and bloom, it will announce the arrival of spring in Annapolis. For more information, please go to https://journeynorth.org/tm/tulips/HowTo.html.
Reservations for bulbs starts Monday, September 10. Volunteers may order up to 100 tulip bulbs and 100 daffodil bulbs for each project. This year we will be offering red tulips and yellow daffodils. The bulbs are free, but only available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To place an order, please e-mail Marisa Wittlinger at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name, contact phone number and organization (if applicable), and indicate what public landscape area you will be planting and the number of bulbs you’re requesting. Bulb pick-up will be held Monday through Friday, October 22-26 at the “Pip” Moyer Recreation Center located at 273 Hilltop Lane in Annapolis.
