How did you become interested in permaculture?

I'm interested in workshops that deal with permaculture content, especially hand-on experience in constructing sustainable farming structures, like hoop houses, chicken tractors, sheet mulch beds, ponds, etc.

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

I am currently laying the groundwork for a small CSA farm in Bergen County, NJ. I just moved from NYC to my family's 5-acre plot in a small rural-ish town in the suburbs and am planning to cultivate up to 2 acres.

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)

Not at this point, but I am looking for farmer partners to get a farm together upstate NY in about 5 years from now.....

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

Community!

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 finished a PDC at Epworth in the spring of 2009.

Introduction

I'm super interested in permaculture and ways I can incorporate it into my life. Looking forward to meeting others who share a passion and vision for sustainability and regeneration.
