You get free plants and all you have to do is put them in the ground with your friends and neighbors? That’s Clean Up Green Up! This one-day, county-wide landscape beautification effort of the County Executive in Prince George’s County, Maryland, (formerly Gorgeous Prince George’s Day) has been bringing communities together for over ten years. This year, Clean Up Green Up’s planting day will be October, 29, 2016. The County’s Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) provides free plant material with the promise that community groups will plant in public spaces. The Neighborhood Design Center partners with DPW&T and other agencies and provides design and technical assistance to any interested groups.
