How did you become interested in permaculture?

I took a fascinating weekend workshop on permaculture that was facilitated by two people from the Findhorn Ecovillage (Scotland).

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

Have not taken 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 have started a meetup group that brings awareness on issues surrounding sustainable communities or ecovillages. You can see past and future events: http://ecovillagemovementnyc.wordpress.com/

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

Although not strictly permaculture, great books I've read include: Secrets of the Soil, The One Straw Revolution, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight

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

Connecting people to the land / nature (both within and out of the city). Building community / learning more about working together as a community.
