How did you become interested in permaculture?

Through my interest in sustainable living and organic gardening.

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

No. I feel this snobish obsession with PDC does not serve in promoting permaculture to a broder public to achieve real change. I'm much more interested in applying and sharing the knowledge I've acquired attending various short courses on a broad set of skills. We all have different ways of learning.

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 live it everyday in my tiny, sustainable, off grid house and large garden and food forest.

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

I favour tangible actions over endless theorising. Though I've been known to waste time on www.permies.com/forums from time to time...

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

Introduction

I'm an ex Brooklynite and passionate environmentalist currently living the good permie life in my self buit tiny house on a big patch of forest. Doing my best to transmit my passion for sustainable living.

What Julie B. is saying about this Meetup Group

It is very stimulating and encouraging to meet others who are actually doing something about "it". The networking aspect is a big plus for me and so are the related event updates. As for the meetings, I wish they went beyond the brief "Hi my name is" and rhetorical debates. Courses and theories are a good thing no doubt but there's so much more to this! I'm genuinely interested in hearing what you are doing and planning on doing in the near future. I want to focus on the here and now.
