Mayor Michael Pantelides and the Annapolis community invite you to help make Maryland’s capital city a beautiful place during 2017 GreenScape on Saturday, April 22.

GreenScape is a volunteer effort that encourages and supports individuals and organizations to plant and maintain native gardens in public areas throughout the city of Annapolis. Volunteers clean up and plant flower and vegetable gardens in public spaces throughout the City. The City provides plant materials, mulch, trash bags and gloves; the community provides volunteers who want to make a difference in Annapolis.

In 2016, the City of Annapolis was designated as a Bee City USA®. With the importance of sustaining pollinators, more pollinator-friendly plants are added to the GreenScape plant selection this year.

Organizational meetings will be held on Wednesday, February 1 and Wednesday, March 1. Both meetings will be held at 6 p.m. at the “Pip” Moyer Recreation Center located at 273 Hilltop Lane in Annapolis.

If you are unable to attend the meeting on Wednesday, February 1, you can download the order form by going to www.annapolis.gov in early February. Go to “Business” (top bar) and then to “Forms, Permits & Licenses” (under “Opportunities”) to find the GreenScape Order Form. Complete the form and e-mail it to Marisa Wittlinger at [email protected]. For more information, please e-mail Marisa Wittlinger.
