Introduction

Urban agriculturalist seeking to expand my knowledge on all things green

How did you become interested in permaculture?

I've begun growing food on my terrace and became seduced by growing things in the urban landscape and how it can change our city. I want to have beautiful things growing year round indoors and out.

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

-

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)

Im growing food on my terrace and I'm getting involved in hydroponics projects for expanding local food grown in the city.

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

The Essential Urban Farmer (book)

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

How we use our rooftop and other dead space in the city, and what can be done in the future towards developing systems to make our city greener. Also, teaching the importance of food in the classroom and addressing what our education system needs to begin making progress on educating kids about making decisions about food and health.
