How did you become interested in permaculture?

Yes, depending on the cost.

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

No - except possibly a 'green roof' design.

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 in midtown Manhattan and make my living as a freelance computer tech. As much as I'd like to live in an ecovillage, I need to be near my customers - all of whom are in NYC...

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

I'd like to see permaculture construction developed for urban areas - like NYC... As the existing infrastructure fails, people will desperately need to create off-grid solutions for water, sewage, and AC power. Doing so will both save lives, and improve the quality of life for the survivors. There's a radical eco-architect Michael Reynolds, who's designing off-grid self-sufficient communities. More about him is at http://www.garbagewarrior.com/

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

No - haven't done the course yet - no diploma. But I am interested if it's not too costly.


Hi, I'm a computer tech/ex-audio tech, and documentary film evangelist. Why? Because mainstream media is SO controlled that docu-films are one of the few ways we can get truthful media! For more about me, visit my website - www.zenarrow.com. Thanks!
