The Pennystone Project
A free, non-commercial resource for Pennyslvania native plant landscaping enthusiasts, the Pennystone Project provides information relating to geological and ecological factors that affect and create plant habitats and communities. Learn more about the Pennystone Project.
Landscaping with native plants improves the health of the planet on many levels. We steward the land rather than dominate it; we collaborate with nature rather than try to control it; we discover enlightenment rather than conform to artificial standards. To successfully model Pennsylvania's complex and diverse ecology, detailed information is useful. Perhaps we can help.
