Green Drinks Annapolis Returns to the Garden
March 22 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Annapolis Green returns to Homestead Gardens for its most anticipated Green Drinks Annapolis events — our yearly trek to Homestead Gardens in the midst of its beautiful annual spring Flower Show.
Green Drinks Annapolis, in its ninth March in a row at Homestead Gardens, will focus on the importance of composting — the practice of returning food scraps and other organic matter back to the Earth as Nature intended. For over 25 years, Homestead Gardens has presented a themed flower show every March to celebrate the coming of spring and dust off the doldrums of winter. The title of the 2017 Flower Show is “Modern HOMEsteading – a lifestyle of self-sufficiency.” Compost is a vital component of healthy soil, and of self-sufficiency. It saves resources, is good for the Earth, and is easy to do.
Admission to Green Drinks Annapolis is free, with a $10 donation to Annapolis Green, and includes appetizers from Herrington on the Bay, including its favorite “plant forward” menu items. Herrington on the Bay has delighted Green Drinkers in the past at this event with innovative and delicious locally sourced appetizers.
The cash bar will be supplied by Mills Fine Wine & Spirits. Owners Jen and Jerry Donahoe will select an interesting array of wine and beer for the event, which they will be glad to discuss. Soft drinks will be available as well.
The event sponsor is the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and two of its initiatives: Project Clean Stream, the largest watershed-wide cleanup event in the Chesapeake Bay region; and Businesses for the Bay, a membership association designed by businesses for businesses. It provides businesses with a forum where they can make their voices heard, share best practices, facilitate environmental stewardship volunteer opportunities for employees, save money, reach social and sustainability goals, and promote environmental efforts that are important to them, their customers, and their communities.

Now in its 11th year, the intent of Green Drinks Annapolis is to gather the eco-minded from all walks of life to meet in person, exchange information, meet new people and learn something new. Everyone is welcome.
Green Drinks is an initiative of Annapolis Green, a non-profit whose mission is to connect, inform, and inspire Annapolis residents, organizations, and businesses to care for the environment, live more responsibly and create a more beautiful and thriving community.
