The Sun & Shade Project entails planting peony (sun) and hosta (shade) in public areas and engaging anyone with a potential green thumb from 5th graders at a middle school to elders at a senior center to participate.  The beauty of the peony is that one stem alone constitutes a bouquet and its remarkable foliage is quite enduring.  Hosta are as varied as they are plentiful and at the end of their season, splitting and sharing them ensures a plush, verdant landscape.  Of course, all this beauty masks the vital functions these plants perform, day in and day out, including reducing soil erosion as well as purifying and cooling the air.  Please contact me to discuss a possible collaboration between your group and City Green.
