GREEN DRINKS ANNAPOLIS RETURNS TO THE GARDEN
Celebrating Spring and Calling for Volunteers
Thursday, March 19, 2015
5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
743 West Central Avenue, Davidsonville
A celebration of spring, a call for environmental cleanup volunteers and a preview of Maryland Day will be the themes of Green Drinks Annapolis, a networking happy hour for the eco-minded, on Thursday, March 19, at Homestead Gardens in Davidsonville.
This is the 7th consecutive year Homestead Gardens has hosted the March edition of Green Drinks Annapolis. The event will be held in the midst of Homestead’s 2015 Flower Show, titled Celebrate Maryland, to mark the venue’s participation in Maryland Day weekend.
Green Drinks will focus on three community cleanup programs: the watershed-wide Project Clean Stream, Keep America Beautiful's national Great American Cleanup and GreenScape in the City of Annapolis -- three ways volunteers can donate a few hours of time to improve the environment and the community.
The event is sponsored by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, organizer of Project Clean Stream.
There is no admission charge.
Beverages, offered by Mills Fine Wine & Spirits, will be available for a small donation to Annapolis Green. Complimentary appetizers, made with locally sourced and sustainable ingredients, will be offered by Herrington on the Bay.
Annapolis Green connects the community by communicating an environmental message that is meaningful, positive and motivational, engaging residents, businesses, non-profits, government agencies, and visitors. Its goal is to make the Annapolis area as Green as possible—a place where sustainability is a way of life and a source of pride – by accelerating the work of the legions of dedicated environmentalists and celebrating successes – in person, on the radio, online, and in everyday life.
