How did you become interested in permaculture?

studied earth architecture in india and learned/read/discussed permaculture

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

no course

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.:

member of food cooperative, bicycle commuter, cohabitation

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

i have bill molison's first tome - youtube is worth a thousand pictures that are worth a thousand words

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

we have a private backyard that is not utilized most effectively - we would love to see block-by-block composting (a la Germany/France/etc) - food surplus should be a business model similar to recycling - community activism as exercise is something i'm thinking about (food delivery in sneakers, tree planting as cross-training, sweeping to paddle..etc...)
