Plant This Not That graphic

unity gardensAt this annual spring lecture hosted by Unity Gardens learn about how any yard can be a mecca for songbirds, pollinators, and beneficial insects if you make the right plant choices. But let’s face it, if you’ve already got an existing landscape, it’s hard to know where to start.

The speaker for this virtual and in-person event is Shari Wilson, former Maryland Secretary of the Environment and author of the Nuts for Natives website and blog. Her weekly blog showcases beautiful native landscapes and she advises gardeners on common native plant swaps for boxwoods, crape myrtles, liriope and other standbys that many of us inherited with our houses – or perhaps planted ourselves before we knew the vast benefits of native plants. You’ll also learn different strategies for making the switch to natives, from baby steps to going all in. Whether you’ve got a postage stamp or a sprawling property, everyone will go away with a list of must-have plants to add to their spring shopping list.

GreenGive

GreenGiveThe GreenGive is a local, environmentally-focused, 24-hour online initiative designed to both raise funds and expand residents’ and businesses’ engagement with local environmental organizations, issues, projects and actions.

On July 21-22, 2020, we invite the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County community to join with us to support clean water in our own communities. Through an interactive online platform, individuals and businesses will be invited to invest in clean water by donating to any of the GreenGive partners:

Pick More Than One! All ten GreenGive partners are part of a force for the Greener Good in Anne Arundel County.

Funds raised through the GreenGive will be used by the ten GreenGive partners to invest in actions that have a tangible impact on our own local waterways and quality of life. Every dollar raised will be turned into projects and programs that really do make a difference right here in Anne Arundel County. In a time when federal support and leadership is uncertain at best, we know that the fate of our local environment is in our own hands.

We all love our Chesapeake Bay and consider it a national treasure. GreenGive organizations intend to make sure that the waterways that feed into the Bay are clean and ready for fishing, crabbing, swimming and boating. There is no better legacy we can leave the next generation.
