How did you become interested in permaculture?

I already am.

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

Potentially. I just moved to Jersey City and there is some city land that could be available, and I'm hoping to do a project in Haiti sometime.

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.:

Not for the next several years.

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

I don't really get this question. I could take a guess at what it means, but I don't feel like it! ;-)

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 am currently taking one with Andrew Faust.

    It would be good to see you again, Ethan. It would be great if you could make the November meeting at SJC.

    Hi Ethan! It was fun to chat with you as I made a few trips to the recycle and compost bins at the Veg Festival today. I just joined GNYs and am ready to learn to live more green! :)

    Welcome Ethan! That camel in your photos sure is smiling :) Many of us were involved in creating a permaculture learning garden in Washington Park in Jersey City. Have you checked it out? Contact Jan Graff or Elyssa Serrelli about it.

    Hi Ethan. Thanks so much for joining. Welcome! We would love to hear about your volunteer work in Haiti and share our culture with you. Feel free to come to events and practice whatever Kreyol you know. I've had to push myself because I sometimes get shy about speaking. But speaking is exactly what will help us all to improve. I'm also looking for someone to host more formal lessons so stay tuned!
