How did you become interested in permaculture?

already did

a small garden, yes

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.:

interested in joining and organizing an Urban EcoVillage, more like an eco-neighborhood, or eco-block kind of thing in NYC, Philly, or Camden

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

i think the first might be referring to daniel quinn in some manner and i just read about rhizome theory today as an offshoot from the Critical Mass wikipedia article

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'm surprised you aren't a member of Nature Studies. It has the closest vibe to RDI i've seen in any of the local groups.
