How did you become interested in permaculture?

Meeting farming communities in Australia, and later on in Denmark. Permaculture appeals to me as the way we should be thinking about sustenance.

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

I haven't taken a course yet.

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 currently live a somewhat transient lifestyle, gathering knowledge and connections to later build my home and land. I try to spread ideas, and reuse materials, and try to live with little waste.

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

Recently read One Straw Revolution, something I believe all permaculturists should read. And of course original text from Bill Mollison.

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

Food, community-building, connectedness. Of course land use, but I don't think the other problems will be fixed until we relearn how to live with our land and live with ourselves.

Introduction

I've been learning about agricultural systems for a while, stemming from my interest and background in ecological biology. Interesting in seeing permaculture reshape our urban experience.
