Thanks for welcoming me! I have four acres, about a acre has been set aside for permaculture type growing, fruit trees, bamboo and other useful plants. The rest of the property I hope to use to grow and propagate native plants, that is my big interest. I'm not obsessive about "native" status, but I am interested in the connections with animals and insects and the rest of nature. I would love to create a nursery (possibly doing a little internet business, but rather focus on community nearby). There seems to be possible demand because people create areas on there land for conservation (usually for hunting but none of my business, if they are creating habitat...). There are so many aesthetically pleasing plants native to the coastal plain that I think people will really take interest if they are not aware of them (and I assume many aren't because there is not alot of pristine wilderness anywhere, mainly farms and timber land. There are obstacles but I'll see how far I get!
