Native Gardening

What state are you in?  Do you have any websites, books, clubs to suggest?  This is the best way, in my opinion, to garden organically.  What's *meant* to grow, will grow with little intervention by humans if it's native.

I'm in VA, Zone 7b, although my little patch is closer to 8, and I do like to "push" the envelop a bit.  Hence I have several nice tropicals in pots, that I can protect in the winter.  It's great fun.  I been gardening for almost 30 years and have always used organic methods.  My area of expertise is primarily vegetable gardening, but we also have fruit and nut trees and I use organic methods with those also.  Sometimes the fruit's not as pretty as what's the the store, however, they have this nifty little items called knives that work wonders to cut out bad spots.  And there's no comparison for taste!!  

I've been working on converting my flower beds to all native type plants.  I'm currently signed up to take classes to become a Master in the use of Native Plants.  I think that's going to be very interesting.  

I also suggest you check with your local extension office for info on your local Native Plant Society.  Also many Master Gardeners use only organic and are a great source for info and advice.
