Mayor Michael Pantelides and the Annapolis Recreation and Parks Department invite community members to participate in the Nation’s 24th annual “Make a Difference Day” by volunteering for the City’s fall GreenScape project on Saturday, October 24. “Make a Difference Day” is a national effort encouraging groups and individuals to volunteer in their community to improve the lives of others.
For fall GreenScape, volunteers may order up to 100 tulip bulbs and 100 daffodil bulbs for each project. Planting recommendations for massed plantings are eight to 10 tulip bulbs or five daffodil bulbs to be planted per each square foot of garden. The bulbs are free but only available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Additionally since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this year’s tulips are pink and named “Cure tulips”. In honor of the fight against breast cancer, ten percent of the City’s purchase price for this year’s tulip bulbs will go towards breast cancer research.
To place a bulb order, please e-mail Marisa Wittlinger at [email protected] 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 19-23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Roger W. “Pip” Moyer Community Recreation Center located at 273 Hilltop Lane in Annapolis.
