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)?

    Thanks for commenting on my page, Helen. Yes, making my own body products is most definitely a healthier alternative. I use high grade organic ingredients and highest quality essential oils. My next endeavor will be to make my own soap. Honesty, I have fun doing it all. I hope to see you at a meet-up soon. : )

    Hi Helen!
    Looks like this is going to be a great group! Thanks for the info about the compost workshops. The one you posted from the NYC website is actually way uptown in Harlem. The next Queens Botanical Garden workshop is May 3rd so I will most likely attend that workshop. After I will definitely contact you about worms! So excited! Heads up for Earth Day celebrations Queens Botanical Garden is doing a volunteer day and march to the Unisphere on the 23rd to celebrate.
    Thanks again,

    Thank you for your message regarding my treadle pump project! Early in the project, we considered biodrainage and crop rotation, but we set those aside because our background is in mechanical engineering and not agricultural engineering. I am very interested in hearing more. Please email me at [masked].

    Hello Helen!
    I just joined Green NYers meet up. Thanks for the awesome work you're doing!
    Please check Tweeter links in the welcome email. They didn't work for me. I think it's b/c Tweeter might have changed their URL format. This one does work: https://twitter.com/greensaturdays­­

    Best wishes,
