Spring Greenscape Day April 24 - 9:00 am to noon Please join us for the spring greenscape day and help to spruce up the SOFO corridor. We have two locations of interest, Bay Ridge Triangle and the Annapolis Middle School fence. Gardening at the triangle and installing artwork at the fence. Here is a signup if you would like to join the fun. SOFO HoHo 2020 Toy Drive for underprivilage students on the SOFO Corridor. The 2020 SOFO HoHo will have a new look to adhere to COVID concerns. Because social distancing is the now norm, we are adapting the SOFO HoHo Toy Drive to a collection of cash donations. We will not be collecting presents at various locations along the SOFO Corridor, and unfortunately we will not have a HoHo event to visit Santa. Instead we are asking for cash donations and a small team of SOFO elves will whisk around and purchase the toys for the students. Students, who need some holiday cheer, will be receiving the toys around Dec 17th, in time for their adults to prepare for the big day on Christmas. Donation Link

2019 Fall Greenscape
On Oct 26 18 volunteers gathered to beautify two locations along the SOFO corridor. The first location is the "Triangle of Death" which we have adopted and keep fresh. This year we had 200 bulbs to plant after taking the sunflowers out of the way. The other location is the Annapolis Middle School Fence. Here we removed leaves that were trapped at the base of the fence, spruced up the memorial garden, and added water to the lighthouse mural.
Students and teachers helped at the fence while business owners and garden club members helped at the triangle.
(Triangle of Death is the triangle at the light - Forest Dr, Hillsmere Dr, Bay Ridge Rd, Bay Ridge Dr)
Spring Greenscape 2019-
The spring greenscape project produced a lush garden environment in the triangle of Forest Dr, Bay Ridge Dr, Bay Ridge Rd, and Hillsmere Dr. Over 80 plants were installed. Thanks for the plants from City of Annapolis and Garden Girls. We also planted many wildflower seeds. As you are stopped at the light, take a look.
The Fall Greenscape event took place on Nov 4th starting at 9:00 AM. We planted 200 tulip and 200 daffodil bulbs along the SOFO corridor for bright spring flowers. Expect to see flowers on the median strip outside the K&B True Value store. Also bright blubs will be greeting the students of Annapolis Middle School this spring. Planters and gardens outside the school are full of bulbs, thanks to the help from the Goals for Growth Soccer Club athletes.
