This year, the Rotary Club of Annapolis teamed with students from Eastport based Seeds4Success and the Hillsmere Garden Club to improve the front garden of the Hillsmere Library with native plants and bushes supplied by Annapolis's GreenScape program. GreenScape is an Annapolis City and community partnership investment of beautification, clean-up, and planting in public spaces through the city. For 30 years, hundreds of projects have been initiated and adopted by individuals, community groups and neighborhood associates.
Hillsmere Library was chosen for this project because it is the location where the Seeds4Success students meet weekly with their tutors and mentors.
Lydia Hohman and Elaine Shanley led a very successful Quick Impacts project Saturday working on the garden at Hillsmere Community Library with 4 other Rotary volunteers, Seeds 4 Success volunteers and kids as well as the Hillsmere Garden Club. GreenScape from the Parks and Recs department provided the plants.
