Join the Green Team

Have fun, be “Bay Responsible” and help the Annapolis Rotary and Annapolis Green make the 73rd Annual Crab Feast a Zero-Waste event again this year. With your help, NOTHING from the 2500-person feast will go to the landfill. EVERYTHING will be recycled or composted.  Friday, August 3rd starting at 4pm, enthusiastic folks are needed to staff the waste stations and help folks put their left-overs and everything else in the right receptacle. They also need people to hang signs and banners during setup, and help with the very fast and efficient cleanup at the end. Volunteers are needed at the Annapolis Green table at the event too – to explain the Bay Responsible program and take sales orders for the compost that will result from the feast.  To volunteer, email bay@annapolisgreen.com
