How did you become interested in permaculture?

In the late fall of 2008 I saw a posting on a listerve I was on about an upcoming permaculture class, and decided to try it. Based on the description I felt it reflected values I supported.

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

Andrew Faust. PDC Winter 2009

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 a blog about strategies for transitioning or "designing" an intentional life incorporating principles from permaculture, cradle-to-cradle and feng shui.

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

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

All of the above.
