How did you become interested in permaculture?

it's a natural fit to my general lifestyle,principles,ethics and joys.

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, the cash outlay has been an obstacle.

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)

organizing a garden-share/coop,csa,urban farm of sorts. propagating plants for replanting and sale/barter.saving seed for replanting and guerrilla gardening. hosting a monthly vegan garen-potluck for the past 2 years. offering workshops on relevant/related subjects , bartering for services/items, pooling/sharing resources with friends, salvaging waste materials for re-purposing. Milling fallen trees in my neighborhood into high grade specialty lumber for my flutes,furniture and other craftworks

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

educational resources:youtube, permies forums, library, kindle books, torrents. permacultureglobal map. Free material resources: local cafe (coffee grinds/burlap bags),local raw-food restaurant (fresh kitchen scraps for my worm-farm) local stables (horse manure/bedding) industrial parks (clean pallets) local tree-service (timber logs and loads of woodchips) neighbor's landscaper (truckloads of grass clippings/leaves) Craigslist (virtually anything!)

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

issues that can be felt in a tangible way interest me most, and ones in which people can have a vested interest in.
