How did you become interested in permaculture?

Reading about Permaculture on the Meetup sites kindled my interest.

If you have taken a Permaculture Design Course, who was your was your teacher and what year did you receive your certification?

Took Claudia Joseph's UPAT course in 2012. http://www.meetup.com/GreenNewYorkers/events/57879082/ Would like to complete the PDC.

How are you currently applying the permaculture principles in your life? (Care of people and the earth, fair distribution of surplus, promotion of diversity, cooperation, integration, zero waste, etc.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permaculture)

I feel I belong to an urban "virtual" Ecovillage. http://www.meetup.com/GreenNewYorkers/messages/boards/thread/19231322 A current project is to redesign my own yard into a garden farm.

What are some of your favorite permaculture resources? (Books, videos, websites, etc.)

I'm reading Peter Bane's Permaculture Handbook.

What are some aspects of life in New York that you would like to see the group address from a permaculture perspective? (For example: land use patterns, the banking and healthcare systems, transportation, housing, community development, food, waste

I wish I could be surrounded by Permaculture practicing neighbors. My current neighbors are very traditional thinkers. Anyone want to move to my neighborhood (Flushing Queens)?
