The Upstate New York Hosta Society’s goal is to promote knowledge and interest in growing Hostas. The organization has over a hundred members, many of whom travel from across New York and neighboring states to share their diverse gardening interests and varied botanical skills. They meet during the year to exchange ideas and experiences, to encourage beginners, and to support members as they venture into new areas of growing, propagating, and hybridizing Hostas. Once a year they sell divisions of the Hostas grown in their members gardens to the public to raise funds for the club’s activities for the next year. Execontrol Global Solution’s Jonathan Sternfeld, senior applications developer, participated in this plant sale. He volunteered to help sell the plants.
