How did you become interested in permaculture?

I encountered the term "permaculture" partly as a result of becoming more informed about food, as well as my search for more sustainable lifestyle practices. I am new at learning about permaculture and am very interested in learning more.

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

Not yet, but I would like to (possibly during the summer of 2014).

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 am an educator in an inner city area and would like to apply practices within an urban setting.

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

No answer yet

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

All of the above, of course. Lately I have been especially concerned about waste, as I have seen the effects of poor waste management on health.
