Being from Northern California, I often overlooked the beauty of the Earth and it's natural resources. I came to New York to pursue film/tv and worked In the industry for four years until I stepped away to focus on a new passion which started with a new interest in plant and animal species and gardening. It wasn't until I spent a few years in New York, that I started to notice the importance of not only the beautiful natural habitats that exist but also the ability to utilize them & live in self-sustaining habitats beneficial to both humans and non-humans.
No, I have not taken a permaculture design course.
I'm currently gardening and just started experimenting with composting. I hope to learn more through my trials and errors. I also am looking at graduate programs with a focus on designing spaces that are self-sufficient and ecologically viable. Cornell has a program in their Human Ecology department that I am especially interested in.
The Ecological Thought- Timothy Morton
I would like to see more productive use of public spaces which are based on permaculture and also hold educational and community-oriented purposes. For example more efficient and productive community gardens, and also more public parks that are planted with beneficial native plants and not just vast lawns and soccer fields.
I'm interested in truthful, yet open-minded knowledge of or relating-to permaculture. I've visited a few institutes in both New York and in California that have wholly adopted permaculture practices with success.
