I took a fascinating weekend workshop on permaculture that was facilitated by two people from the Findhorn Ecovillage (Scotland).
Have not taken the PDC.
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/
Although not strictly permaculture, great books I've read include: Secrets of the Soil, The One Straw Revolution, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight
Connecting people to the land / nature (both within and out of the city). Building community / learning more about working together as a community.
No introduction yet
If you are interested in permaculture, and eco-communities, this is a great place to meet others with similar interests, and share ideas or work together on projects.
