GreenScape planning meeting #1 is tonight at 6 pm -- the meeting will be held virtually! This year’s GreenScape will take place on Saturday, April 24.
GreenScape is a volunteer effort that encourages individuals and organizations to plant and maintain native flower and vegetable gardens in public spaces throughout the City of Annapolis. The City provides plant materials, mulch, and yard waste bags, and in turn, members of the community volunteer to make a difference in Annapolis.
Organizational meetings will be held virtually in 2021 as this year's program is different from years past. Meetings will be held at 6 pm on both Wednesday, February 3 and Wednesday, March 3. It is requested that all volunteers attend both meetings because important up-to-date information will be shared about GreenScape during each session.
You can download the GreenScape 2021 order form at www.annapolis.gov/GreenScape. Complete the form and email it to Marisa Wittlinger at email@example.com before Wednesday, March 3.
