How did you become interested in permaculture?

I've been interested in environmental issues since I was in grade school. Helping establish a low-income community's first organic vegetable garden piqued my interest.

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

I have not taken such a course, but look forward to exploring the option for the future.

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 promote the triple bottom line through my work healthcare.

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

Mother Earth News, my friends.

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

I'd love to see the housing sector embrace development of more connected communities, and to work with housing authorities to make sustainable living a baseline, not luxury.
