For her Advanced Master Gardener project titled Homesteading on the Prairie Flower Farm; Using Right Plant-Right Place to Create Sustainable Landscapes Soozi Conner Pline documents how she is creating a sustainable landscape by reducing runoff and erosion, restoring native plant and animal habitats, developing edible and esthetic gardens and introducing pollinators and farm animals all while building land value through conservation practices.  Soozi’s presentation titled Plants Native to North Alabama was developed through observations and trial and error as she and her husband Dan began planting native plants on their 5-acre farm in Limestone County in 2021. This is an ongoing venture that she loves to share and, in the process, hopes her talk will encourage, inspire, and educate you!
