How did you become interested in permaculture?

I learned about it on the Meetup website; concern for a better quality of life for myself and others. I am concerned about the decimation of natural species (bees, fishing stocks, etc) due to waste and the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers.

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